    1. You may only submit one photo per contest.

    2. The contest runs for exactly one week, from the first time stamp of the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

    3. Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. A good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography, so it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

    4. The judge will choose his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it, and include a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for choosing a new topic and starting a new contest thread, which will again run for exactly one week.

    This week's theme is: Abandoned

    Bain Project

    [​IMG]

    This was taken at the EB Bain water treatment plant in Raleigh, NC. The building was constructed in the 40's but was abandoned in the early 90's when it was replaced by newer facilities. This past summer a local developer purchased it and curated a group of artists to create installations throughout the space using materials from the space. They then opened it to the public over two weekends. It's eventually going to be renovated and turned into office or retail space. Hopefully it will maintain its charm.

    Darn, I wish I could have went to Linda Vista Hospital to take pictures for this but nobody wants to go with me! But here is a picture I took in Amboy CA (its an abandoned town) on route 66.

    Took this a while ago at the Gold Coast. Direct your eyes to the person on the beach, I would have cropped it more but I felt that would have lost some of the sense of abandonment? in the photo.
