Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

If it’s Friday, it must be France …

For this week’s post I’m joining in the Weekly Photo Challenge … any excuse to spend time in my photo albums! “Abandoned” is the theme.

Does your imagination run wild when you see abandoned properties? Mine does! I have an uncontrollable urge to capture the image and then my mind wanders as I consider what stories there are to be told.Provence-PSandsPhotos



Any time you like, just click on the photos to enlarge them. When you have some time, please visit some other participating blogs to see their photographic interpretations of “abandoned”. There’s an amazing selection!

I’m off to make up some stories!

Bon weekend, tout le monde!

  1. Great pics again! I am also the type that loves to explore abaondoned buildings and properties. I find them intriguing.

    • Exactly, Angeline … it is all about the stories. What are they? Who knows them? A coincidence with your wording: part of the story I am weaving right now involves a weaver! Hmmm – maybe that just seems funny to me. Time for bed!

    • It can be that, for sure, Totsy. I’m a big scaredy-cat so I tend to fantasize about the romantic past there might have been … but you are right about the tale being unfinished. I want to know why!

  2. Insightful post. There is always a story behind an abandoned home. There is a profound knowledge that in some way it is “our story,” too! We all move forward and there are things we leave behind. Love stopping by…

  3. These are stunning! I often wonder of the life that was once lived where it is now abandoned.

      • I wonder that also. I see it a lot in Italy….shells of what once was….all they need is to be rescued perhaps.

  4. Beautiful photos, Patricia, that take me right to Provence, where I would love to be right now. 🙂 Instead perhaps I’ll run upstairs and smell the lavender in the bag on my pillow.


      • Yes, you’re not having a senoir moment. I didn’t dare write about it in case it fell through. The first and only person to view our house bought it, almost before it went on sale…………

  5. We had often dreamed of buying one of those when we were on the pénichette. There were so many, even an abandoned castle! We could have fixed it… but we grew old too fast…

    • Life is filled with so many dreams, isn’t it? And those dreams are part of what keeps us moving forward. But, you are right, I couldn’t agree more … we grow old too fast. Indeed we do.

It's always good to hear to from you!
