This is a collage I created in response to the challenge "Abandoned" at Inspire Me Thursday. I didn't have an abandoned art piece, but I've always like abandoned houses, barns, cars etc. They have stories to tell and beauty in their decay. Can you name all eight? I could have just as easily created a piece of defunct computers....what a wasteful society!

This looks great! The decay has added so much character to the vehicles, but also its a sad comment on our wasteful society.

This is such a great array of abandoned vehicles! I love the colors and the patina/rust the metal takes on after being out in the elements for so many years. This is such a great composition with all the different shapes and anles and colors, but it is sad... I agree that we waste so much!

Ohhh, this to me is such a sad picture. Abandoned? Yes. Oh, the stories these vehicles could tell.

I found myself just gazing at this photo for awhile. You did such a wonderful job putting it together.
