A photograph of an abandoned bridge over a lake recently caught my attention. It would have made an intriguing first capture for this project but it wasn’t to be. The decaying bridge and the conservatory it leads to form part of Witley Park. This private estate is also home to Britain’s most extraordinary folly – a ballroom located 40ft beneath the surface of a lake!
Welcome to The Alphabet Photography Project #alphabetphoto.
Continuing with the abandoned theme, this photograph was taken at the Chilworth Gunpowder Mills in Surrey. Established in 1626, it was one of the largest mills in the country and the most important supplier of gunpowder to the government. These solid millstone rocks were once used for grinding gunpowder. The old mill is now a designated monument having closed nearly a hundred years ago.
How to join in
The Alphabet Photography Project takes place every Wednesday. A Linky opens at 6am that day until the following Tuesday if you’d like to share a short post about your photograph. There is no badge but if you include a link back to PODcast I’ll happily share your post on Twitter and the Google+ page in return.
The theme can be interpreted in any way your choose. For example the letter A might be a photograph of an apple, an object that resembles the letter A (like a pattern in a gate) or a photograph of the letter A using props. It could also be an adjective.
