ThereAreFourLights: Is that graveyard in New England? I used to hang out at a cemetery back in my hometown in VT that had stones that looked just like that. I wonder if it's the type of rock quarried in the area.

[image from undergroundbastard.com too old to be available]On October 24, a fire wiped out the 163-year-old St. George Maronite Catholic Church, leaving only the wall behind the pulpit intact, but melting all the other glass in the building as almost the rest of it burned to the ground.

stanyanstreet: Thanks! (though I don't know which one you're referring to..


sorry, the hospital. it's .... ok i just stared at that sentence for about a minute without coming up with an adequate word to follow "it's".

i would love it for my wallpaper if you wouldn't mind parting with a larger version of it....but i totally understand if you don't want to.

Yep, the first pic is from Hollister Hill Cemetery in Plainfield, Vermont; the second is from a cemetery in Peacham, Vermont. Where are you from?

loved them all! The doll with the trimmed nose hair...very weird. Ever see corn husk dolls? I've had a small collection since I was younger. I think they came from one of the islands but they are so cute and unique. I never see them anywhere else.

What's left of the original Queen, NM.
In my opinion it's the best picture I've ever taken.
Which is sad, cause I've taken alot.

One of three. This is from a spectacular old house sitting in the middle of a field down HWY 49 south of Brinkley, AR. The setting and the house itself are just mind blowing.

If I'm violating the rules, please forgive me. This is my first time participating and I'm posting at the suggestion of another TFer. He made no suggestion that this was a violation of "not of the same subject" rule. I'll delete the others if necessary.

I would have loved to stay longer and photograph more but we were late in the day finding it, and darkness was on us fast. Of course we had no flashlights with us either (great planning!) but GalleyWench and I have a standing date to go back someday.

stanyanstreet : Thanks for the props on the church shot. I really dig the "coffee time" photo you put up. Btw, I did four yrs @ UVM (back when the drinking age was 18 and B'town had more bars per capita than anywhere else in the country - if these things are important to you). Also, I'm heading up to Woodstock, VT this weekend. I'll be sure to say high to the state for ya!

idle_hands: Thx for the snow plough rr car - it makes me tingly all over! Btw, time+sea=yummy.

veruce: I think I need to chill with you and GalleyWench - I'll bring the flashlights and batteries. Love that asylum shot where the chiascaro meets color - nice use of depth, too; it almost loooks like an optical illusion. It'll be in my dreams.

monkeybort : I'm doing fine, fine, fine taking this thread in - awesome entries, no? Your doll picture, though, is making me drool - I've been a big/silent fan of your doll pix, but this one takes the cake. Here's one for you:

I stumbled onto her outside an abandoned train depot up in Lawrence, MA - I think she has your eyes.

yes, definitely awesome entries. lots of variety as well, which is always nice. if there's to be a field trip to the asylum, where do i sign up? i've got a permission slip and everything.

are you intentionally blending last week's theme (fire) with this week's? or is it a happy accident? either way, i like it.

she is just delightful! we'll have to save her for our illegitimate silver based love child.

logomancer - and thank you for the doll props! i've been waiting impatiently for an appropriate opportunity to trot one (or more) out.
