    BIG fan of industrial/urban decay photography, but it doesn't necessarily have to be in a city. There are many parts of CA, at least, that are extremely remote and derelict or ruined or abandoned (Death Valley, Darwin, Bodie, Trona, Keeler, Bombay Beach, etc....)

    Closing date: June 29th.

    Shots can be from your portfolio or taken specifically for the competition.

    Now for the Rules:

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. Shots can be uploaded from any gallery, Mu43 or whatever is your preference.

    3. To enter your photo after uploading, copy the code in the Linked Image box and paste it into a reply to to this message. You can use the Quick Reply box at the bottom of this page.

    4. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

    5. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the Mu-43 Contests and Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    8. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun.

    9. Each salon should be open for about two weeks.

    I hope it doesn't require a :43: camera to enter.

    Here's on from my old E-620... so a 4/3 sensor at least.

    This shot was taken at an old dairy farm I explored a few months ago. It was taken with an E-P2 and Olympus 45mm f/1.8. As a kid, we used to get milk from this dairy, but business dwindled, and about 2 years ago, they closed. Hope you enjoy!

    Lots of material in the Mid-Atlantic. Here's one from NYC a few months ago. This was my first outing with my "new" GF1.
