The Tuesday Inspiration: Forgotten and unloved

Thanks to the recession there have been quite a few pubs in our area which would fit this week's TI very well recently. A couple of them have now reopened but sadly this one, in the next village to ours, hasn't been so lucky and is still laying dormant a couple of years after it closed. It's such a shame. It stands beside a roundabout on a busy road so you would think there was enough passing trade to sustain it. However, there are two more pubs thriving in the centre of the village so I guess perhaps three is just one too many.

Thanks to Lynn (Snowpie [photoblog.com]) for setting today??s theme. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
