    Love how the weed have grown up around the bicycle. This works well in b&w. Maybe they will bloom into wildflowers and you can do a color version too!

      I love that thought Denise! We were there in the month of November. Now I wonder what it would look like during the Spring months. Thank you for stopping by!

      Julie, I am happy to hear you like them.. Madrid is a strange former mining town. We stopped for about an hour, so I had to be quick.. Thank you!

    The abandoned car looks interesting.

    All fabulous but the abandoned truck is just great! Something about a rusted out old vehicle that gets to me. Maybe it reminds me of – well – me! LOL

    This is one of my favorite subjects and you did a nice job of capturing it. I especially like the old car that looks like children were using the hood for a trampoline. 🙂

    As for me, for this theme I would normally go after old abandoned farm houses and barns, but this time I decided to do something a little bit different. You’re welcome to come and see my take on the matter. 🙂

      I Cris, I will be sure to visit..I tend to gravitate towards the rustic look myself. I like the car too.. It was sitting out in front of a house..I saw beauty in! Thank you for your comment and visit!

        A lot of stuff on my blog tends toward the old and rustic. Enjoy! 🙂
