Oh, no! dM's idea? Now I know I've lost! *lol.

btw -- my images are temporarily down. Server issues where they are stored, but should be up again soon. I'll leave them as is for now, but will move them elsewhere later if need be.

When my dad comes home tonight, I will get all of the old photos out, We've have one thats about 20-30 years old of the first ever house in the area we come from, it was about 50 years old these house when it was taken and the house was about to be bulldozed. Very cool photo! Looks like a haunted house!

You need t have it stored somewhere on the internet. If it's a large picture, just add the link to the URL where you have the image. If it's small enough you can post it inline like Musik did. It would look like this:

Code: [ Select ]
[img]http://www.yourdomain.com/yourimage.jpg[/img]


If you do post it inline make sure it's less than 600 pixels wide.

I changed the rules to clarify that this must be a photograph that you personally have taken, it doesn't matter if it was your camera or not. Otherwise it defeats the purpose of the competition if it isn't even your image.

I thought it was interesting that most abandoned buildings are old and decaying, whereas this building has been empty since being built over a year ago. Although not technically abandoned, the levels & levels of empty office space gave me the impression of being abandoned.

I saw this orange in my backyard just this past weekend. I know it's not a building, but like katana, this was my own rendition of "abandoned", a forgotten orange left in between the leaves under a tree
