Smile April photo contest theme "ABANDONED"

The theme for this contest will be
"Abandoned "

Stop an think about something that is abandoned that you can get a picture of your car with.

No Animals, Cemeteries, if you used a photo previously take another one
Because it is Spring time now we should be able to take a photo outdoors.

To expand this a little lets also use as an option the Mini-Monte that you may own.
Mainly because you may still be driving the old ride.
Editing, other than cropping, IS NOT allowed.
Your Monte or Mini Monte MUST be included somewhere in your photo.
I am attaching some abandoned stuff

photo's
for reference the Erie ones will be good.
Let's see some Creative stuff!!

Submissions will be accepted in this thread through

Sunday, April 29th, 2017.

Nice, you pulled off the 1st Mini-Monte win, great illusion photo. My Monte is in the shop for the next month or so for upgrades. I do not have a mini-Monte, will see if I can get one somewhere soon. We probably do have some abandoned areas close by, going to have to keep my eyes open and see if I can make this happen.

Hey drivernumber3, in the first abandoned sample pic, isn't that an odd place for a Pepsi machine?

No Fooling these are just images that I found, that are an example of something abandoned. You might find an Old Car that's abandoned, Old factory, old Motel, Old School?
Who knows they are just something to give you inspiration.

Funny story: a few years back I met this lady who between the both of us we could talk about stuff we enjoyed and things from the past. She lives in a small rural town. So I jokingly said to her I should drive up some time and we could go to the Drive In theater in your town. She says to me it has been closed for many years? I said perfect!
We can still go, I never watched an entire movie at a drive in anyway. The look on her face was priceless.

Eh I might be able to get the car out to take a picture but that's pushing it. I had it out 2 weeks ago to change the oil but I usually don't get it "out out" for another week or two so we'll see. We're supposed to get snow late tonight into tomorrow morning but then we get way up into the 70s by Sunday.

Ok I modified the close date for the late spring this year. I went up to April 23rd the Sunday After Easter Sunday, that gives a bit more time for the weather to cooperate.

That way if there is an Easter Egg hunt that you are supposed to be at you should be able to make that as well as the photo.
