Hello, everyone. Joanne here and I'll be your host for this week. I don't know if its just me, but its getting harder and harder to come up with a theme! After thinking about it, I've come up with the theme of "Abandoned". I'm sure that most of you, in your travels, have come across something that's been abandoned - a building, a car, something that's been unloved for a long time and left to fall apart. I know all of you super-smart, talented people can come up with something.
I just want to add a note from Mitch as well:
Hi Everyone!! Next weekend I'll be flying off to the US to see my beloved Joanne. We'll be heading out west to tour Arizona. While I'm away Baz has kindly agreed to look after the PT site. He'll have admin access to fix any problems that might arise. If you experience any technical difficulties, contact Baz by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be patient if you are waiting for a reply, as he'll only check for mails every other day. Hosts have already been arranged for the three weekends I'll be away, so just continue with the fun as usual!! I'll be back home on Sunday 28th April.
Ok, now for my photos. My first shot of an abandoned gun battery, was taken at Fort Hancock at the tip of Sandy Hook. This area was used from the early 1900's as a defensive site and protected the New Jersey/New York coast:
Abandoned cabins in Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. These were built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930s for use by travelers:
