This group is primarily focused on artwork featuring abandoned buildings, vehicles, and other objects.
However, the word forlorn is defined as follows
: bereft, forsaken : sad and lonely because of isolation or desertion : desolate : being in poor condition : miserable, wretched : nearly hopeless
That being the case there is a wider latitude for the subject matter than just abandoned objects. A shot of the deserted landscape of Bandlands National Park in the US could certainly qualify as 'forlorn'. So could a painting of someone standing alone at the end of a pier in NYC on an overcast day. You get the idea.
Group Rules: 1) Any medium allowed, Photography, painting, drawing, digital art, etc.
2) Submissions must be fairly obvious that they fit into 'Abandoned and Forlorn' as described above. I will be pretty liberal in what I accept. However, as an example, abstracts are probably not a good fit, they are often too open to interpretation. If you are unsure about your submission, click the Images tab and look at what images are part of the group to give you feel for what the group is about.
3) Limit 3 images per day please. UPDATE: Sean enabled image limits. I set it to 3 so you don't have to think about it anymore, and I don't have to delete anything!
4) Family friendly. No nudes or so-called 'implied nudity'.
5) Don't be offended if I don't accept one or more of your images without warning. If it isn't within the rules it won't get added to the group.
