Picture This #353 ~ Abandoned Places

Hi everyone, this is Mitch. I'll be hosting this week. Before we get started, let me just say that I am concerned that once again the number of members taking part recently is getting really low. Several times recently we have had only four entries, including my own. I'm not sure if it is worth keeping the group going with such low numbers. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.

This week's theme is 'Abandoned Places'. Any place that was once lived in but is now unoccupied, empty, desolate, ruined.  

Here are mine:

1) Castell Carreg Cennen, Carmarthenshire, Wales.

2) Wukoki Ruin, Wupatki National Monument, Arizona. Looks like a castle, but is actually a Hopi communal dwelling.

3) Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire, Wales.

4) 'The Cabins', Valley Of Fire, Nevada.

  1. Hi Mitch love your banner and theme
    all your places are wonderful
    my fav the two from Wales

    I would like to continue with the blogs but will go along with what you all think

  2. Majestic view - can think it a perfect place for a castle

    Magnificent ruin

    Built to last

    Cool shot

  3. I very much like your abandoned shots from the canyons and hills of the States.

  4. Wonderful pictures and great to look at the contrast between the cool greys of Wales and the warm oranges and reds of the Southwest.

    I like Picture This much more when there are more people posting. I know it is a lot of work and at some point one has to ask if it is worth it. I remember when we had 13-14 posts each week. I wonder about a month's hiatus. People tend to be much busier in the summer. I love the pictures people post and am grateful they take time from their lives to do this.
