I have to say that the colors and the detail are very nice also. Maybe a little less sky on the top. The over all picture just goes together very well for me and I think it's great. Jeff :thumbsup:

    Thanks Jeff. that place has lots of possibilities. Hope to get back there someday with more time to explore.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Being 100 years after the event,is some-what late for photography ... but at least the artefacts remain, thanks to the overly dry environment, in my neck-of-the-woods..

    Well, Young Grasshoppers, I went to visit my next-door neighbour Srigg.. It took about 4 hours drive to get his place. Stigg lives close by thank goodness.

    When I met Stigg he said, "Park your Tardis over there Sunshine, on my pateau"

    Not wanting to be a rude guest, I did what Stigg insisted ... and there was a perfect spot on his pateau, to park my Tardis.





    I hope you all have the time to go time travelling,.This thread is a very good jumping off point.

    Warren.

    Wasn't sure whether to drop these here or in the graveyard thread, but since it's not a traditional graveyard...

    The more the merrier. Post as many as you like that are on theme. You've made some very nice additions to the thread.

    This was at an abandoned theme park, turned secret skate park, called 'Splendid China'

    This building is actually a mini-building, but some of the real buildings were fun to shoot as well.

    Wow, blur out the trees directly behind it a little and you'd never know it wasn't full scale, even the rubble seems appropriately sized!

    Re: Weathered, Battered and Neglected

    yea i know. it could fool me and i was there haha

    for anyone that cares, it's actually about 12 ft. tall, and there's a bunch of mini-things there. There's even a mini great wall that runs along one of the park's sides. it's a pretty cool place

    The former Front Entrance of the QE Park Highschool. The building is still in use as a community center, just not the front entrance anymore.

    Found this beside a garage down the street. I think it qualifies for the thread.

    Hey, OT. I've got one of those. Found it in a dump in ' 65 near the Bremerton shipyard.
    Practice dummy from WWII so I was told. I use it for a plant stand. Mine still has paint on it though. I'll try to grab a pic later.

    I can assure you I didn't get any closer that the 105mm would let me nd I sure didn't touch it.

    Couldn't find the horse though.

    Love the last on here Paul. This look like an interesting place where you could spend a lot of time exploring the photo opportunities. I think Angie nailed the term perfectly.

    Don't happen to remember where this is or if it had a proper name do you?
    I like the last with the snow, too.

    Last junction off Las Vegas Blvd, in Jean.
    At least the last turning that isn't a desert dust road.
    Turn right, under I-15 and keep going ...

    If you just keep going, past Jean airport, eventually the boulevard ends in a bank of desert, with a T-junction of desert track going each way.
    Even with a rental I didn't fancy trying that

    Shot with the snow is just a random house by the road, somewhere in AZ I think.
