Abandoned Santa Fe Style


I love the "Abandoned" series that Lynette at Portland Daily Photo has been featuring on her blog. I came across a photo in my archive that would fall under this category. I caught this while on my many walks up Canyon Road. I don't think the person missed it much because it sat out there for over a week.

Love it!

I thi k sometimes you lose something like a hat or glove and you have no idea whee to look for it. I wonder what happens to all the lost things in the world.

Tiago Braga said...

Original, good point of view

Luis Gomez said...

This is good Randy. Thanks for sharing the link. Great idea.

Lowell said...

Funny! It's interesting what one can find on a walk in the park. Or the mountains.

I liked your comment on Ocala: "Mash." It did look a bit like that set! More later today.

Kathy said...

Oh, I'm thinking lost!

Kate said...

So that's where it is!!

Sharon said...

Too bad, it looks like it is in great shape!

parker said...

I've been checking in on Lynette's lost and found, or abandoned dept. also. Maybe this cap was just misplaced! Nice pic!

Rae Walter said...

Great shot for this one Randy. Like the 'abandoned' idea.

Marty said...

oh yes that's great ! love your first shot !

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I think that it says a great deal about the people who happen by that path. Placed carefully on the post and not taken by anyone else...

Bises,

Magpie said...

I like the idea of this post. Maybe my eye will start looking for something that I can post.

TexWisGirl said...

so sad...

Ron said...

Nice shot. Simple and clean

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Interesting what people leave behind inadvertantly or on purpose... sometimes you just scratch your head or think 'Hey it's my lucky day!'

JM said...

I think I will love Lynette's 'Abandoned' idea too. Have to check it out.

Michelle said...

Nice find!

AGMPRISMA said...

smart
Good shot

Judy said...

I wonder if the owner ever did find it again.

Teresa said...

very patriotic tree stump...I would have like 1000 pictures I could categorize as "abandoned". Well, maybe I'm over-exaggerating--but close!

RedPat said...

They were probably looking for it the next week.

Jack said...

A week? Put one out in Connecticut and it would be gone by daybreak.

lifeisaroadtrip said...

Cool idea. A hatless patriot is walking around somewhere.

Tanya said...

oh that's neat...what a fun idea for a photo series....makes me think of a glove that is attached to a guard rail just down the road!

cieldequimper said...

Unless of course the person was only passing... I lost my favourite cap in no man's land on the Snake River...

Michaele said...

Finders keepers? It looks good there.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Boy, if that isn't a metaphor for the state of the US, I don't know what is. Great shot, Randy. :)

Regina K said...

Maybe it was left intentionally as a patriotic act.

becky said...

Ahhh, he was probably a visitor that was just passing thru & forgot it!

NixBlog said...

Good shot, Randy. Fits the theme very well.

Tamera said...

That's a clever idea. I always wonder about the back story when I see random objects left behind like this hat.

Lynette said...

Fabulous find, Randy! Sometimes it is fun to go through those photo archives, isn't it? Thanks for all your visits and comments--you're a swell guy!
