Gone, but not forgotten.
The endearing properties of a photograph.
What better way to portray this weeks photo challenge than to show the power of a photograph and how it’s used to remember a loved one or a moment in time. The image ensures that the moment or the person may be gone, but certainly not forgotten.
Both of these two images were taken on one of my urbex adventures while exploring an abandoned religious college.
In the sacristy of the church I found this memento of a departed loved one. The photograph on the cross is a poignant reminder that he has not been forgotten by his loved ones.
On a lighter note, I came across the World Cup 1994 mug beside an old newspaper in one of the empty rooms. Twenty years later we still hadn’t forgotten Ray Houghton’s magnificent goal against Italy in the Giant’s Stadium in New York. We were the only team to beat Italy in that tournament (in regulation time), they lost out to Brazil in the final after penalties.
