Abandoned

Abandoned car photographed for dailyblog

This abandoned car was shot by Ashok near Budawang National Park in New South Wales, Australia. Its interesting to say the least.

Have you come across such vehicles before? Next time when you pass through a civilian court in India, keep your eyes open. Most of the confiscated (for small crimes) are left to rust while the case drags on........

As usual this weekend too, I will be out of Bangalore for vacation. Will catch you on Monday.

The tree growing through the bonnet gives us a clue to guess for how long the car was abandoned. Fairly in a good condition. Im sure Indian cars wouldnt have stood so long. You too would have seen the plight of Indian cars at Saidapet court venue.

Sorry folks for the delayed comments. I am working quite a lot for the past few days. So I am rushing off for a short vacation. Will catch up both on these comments as well as on your blogs next week.

I guess this is the first time, you are in my blog. Welcome to the series.

Sandhya
So I have come to office b4 u? Thats both surprising and pleasant feeling :-)

Eroteme
Its surprising isnt it?

Smyta
Actually when I have visitors contributing nice pictures and regular visitors to this series, everything falls in place.

Mum
I dont think the car has been there for so long, its just that the tree has grown fast. The indian cars could have been recovered, if dad had done his job properly.

Nikki,
I am sure people normally dont abandon cars like that. This must have been some exceptional case for which we arent aware of the background details......

Anubhav,
Its true - I love travelling, photography and blogging. If only I was good in these things, it would have made a nice combination.
