Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

2 Comments

Weekly Photo Challenge – WordPress

For this week’s photo challenge, show us abandoned. You can go literal, as I have, and share a photo of ruins, a desolate place, or your idea of a wasteland. Or you can interpret it in other ways, from images of overlooked things to forgotten people.

Last weekend my husband and I travelled to Catherine Hill Bay( on the northern perimeter of Central Coast NSW). It is a village built on coal mining but today the old jetty has been abandoned to coal trains . Instead its a haven of pylons for diving beneath and swimming in a shady place.Today graffiti covers the gates that once were the entry of life to this jetty.

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  1. Reblogged this on Forget the Viagra, Pass Me a Carrot and commented:
    There is something very sad about abandoned places. Behind our home in a small hamlet called Inskip in Lancashire, where my father was stationed in the mid 60’s was a fenced off camp of decaying nissan huts. It was bordered by woods on three sides and on windy days you could here the iron roofs banging as they lifted off their fixings. It was inhabited by feral cats and foxes and birds. It was a displaced persons camp, used after the war I believe. I loved to explore (totally against parental orders) it was eerie and exciting at the same time. But, even as a child, I sensed that this place had not been a happy or joyful home to the many who had passed through these basic huts. It had become wild and beautiful as it passed back to nature and I wonder if it has now completely disappeared under the brambles.
