Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Things abandoned long time ago.
The house used to be filled with the sound of children’s feet and sighs of the hardworking farmer and his wife. But that house has now long been abandoned.

                                                                                                                                                          The water pump sits rusting in the field.

Unused. Untouched. Abandoned.

                                                                                                                                                                                                           Why has it all been abandoned?

  2. Passion and love is what makes the world go round! We are to ponder the paths of our feet and consider what lies ahead.

  3. I agree Andrew. I kind of felt the same way as I was taking the pictures this past summer and then when posting the photos for the weekly challenge. “It is sad but true” so to speak and sobering. That is why we need to love and live while we are alive! We need to take risks and live our lives with unabated abandon!
