Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Abandon All Hope"

Description
: Description: Photograph abandoned places. Difficulty: No people.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

Lots of abandoned storefronts downtown in the city I grew up in. They keep trying to revitalize, but it keeps failing.

An abandoned hunting camp deep in a cypress strand. I'm fairly sure I didn't get more than 50 mosquito bites while I took these. I also ticked off a bunch of spiders when I walked through their webs.

Braemar Cottage, July 2007


farm2.static.flickr.comView Full Size


Click for bigger version (pops)

Braemar Cottage in Cresson, PA is a Queen Anne style cottage once owned by industrialist Benjamin Jones. It's rumored (but not confirmed) that Andrew Carnegie stayed at the cottage often (what may have been his summer cottage is the small, tidy, well-kept one next door to this one). Cresson and the surrounding area had been the summertime retreat for the Pittsburgh elite in the late 19th century. The house has been condemned but the historical society (which owns Braemar) is fighting the borough council, which recently voted to demolish the house.

mcchase: A funny thing about the Quabbin Reservoir: Of the four towns (Enfield, Greenwich, Prescott & Dana) that were unincorporated for its building, only Enfield & Greenwich are totally underwater. Prescott is mostly the peninsula that's right in the middle, and it's completely off limits.....

...is mostly still above water. The houses were all taken down or moved. Even the cemeteries of the four towns are all in one spot (the Quabbin Cemetery, just across from the Windsor Dam gate). This was someone's front yard (the tight stone wall), with the foundations visible behind it. It's on a corner of the green, with the side street cutting through the picture.

I ended up going up to Dana on October 31, 2004, after I found out what was up there. It's in Petersham now, and the main way to get there is to walk the mile in from Gate 40, which is located off of Rte. 32A (Hardwick Rd).

\Quabbin: A History and Explorers Guide by Michael Tougias is a good read if you want to know more....
