Wordless Wednesday — Abandoned

by Janice

Last week, my Wordless Wednesday picture was from an impromptu visit to my old neighborhood with Olivia. As well as visiting my old house and school, I took Olivia to my old barn. It was shocking to see it empty and dilapidated. I didn’t have my DSLR with me, but I happened to have the Sony Cyber-shot TX20 that Sony gave me at the recent Sony Mom Blogger event in my purse. I am so glad that I had a camera with me!

What is Your Weekly Photo?

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I usually just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:


Or a basic linky, if you prefer.


Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

I love how Olivia looks like she is walking with a little swagger :)

I’ve had that experience of going back to my old home and seeing the yard that my dad cared for so tenderly end up overgrown and jungle-like. Hard to see those things sometimes, but always good for getting a little perspective (ie: appreciating what you had when you had it)!

Olivia looks like she has a little spring in her step! :) So glad you were able to capture the moment in pictures.

Isn’t it amazing how sometimes those things seemingly lost to the world can be found so beautifully by the camera’s lens. The pictures (and the grooving model) are truly lovely.

Happy Wednesday!

Unfortunately, I cannot visit the first place we moved from because I55 runs right through our old frontroom lol. Have a great day. If you visit my Post don’t forget to put on the video at the bottom just for the music. It goes with the pics.

I love visiting my old stomping grounds too. But, it’s a little sad to see a place you used to enjoy dilapidated like that. :-(

There are so many things from where I grew up that are no longer there. Even my old high school! Great pics!

Well, that must have been a surprise. It’s fun to visit where we grew up, but it’s often not what we expect!

So crazy that it is so abandoned.

These photos are great, on the other hand it’s sad to see an abandoned building!

Wow, that would be a surprise. Going home again always makes me a little sad.

That must have been difficult. I took my kids to the city and wanted to show them where their father had proposed- a little Italian restaurant… It was closed down and abandoned. I took a picture of the sign to have, being we can’t return to the actual restaurant.

I love the beauty of abandonment in photos. Something about the neglect vs. the life of a child. Perfect backdrop!

Such fun! I can’t get past Livvy’s pose. I can just see her shaking her thing. :)

My kids have been lately asking me about when I was a kid and wanting to see places (other then my mom’s house which is where I grew up) this might be a wonderful idea to head into the city & show them places of my childhood! Thanks for the idea

Great photo! There’s just something haunting, yet cool about old abandoned buildings.
