Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #118: Going Going Gone

"If you are yearning for the Good Old Days, just turn off the air-conditioning."

-Griff Niblack

It's seems that public pay phones have all but disappeared, at least in the San Francisco area. But once in a while you can still spot one. Some of my favorite things have GONE missing in recent years. Drive-In Movie theaters. Curbside mailboxes. And soon, Saturday mail delivery might also be a thing of the past. This week I want you to show me something that's GOING, GOING, GONE!

Extra Credit: Show me something you thought was gone, but came back!

Guidelines for Assignment Submissions...

1.The EMPS closes each Sunday evening at 9:00 PM (ET). No submissions will be accepted after that time.

2. Submit your entry by getting your photo, uploading it to you blog or website, and then comeback here and leave me your link in the comment thread. PLEASE REMEMBER... THE LINK YOU LEAVE MUST GO BACK TO AN ENTRY WHICH IS SPECIFIC TO THIS WEEK'S ASSIGNMENT! A general link to your site will not do and will not be added to the list of those participating the following Monday. HYPERLINKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED!

3. Please be sure to provide a link back to the assignment in your submission, so your readers can find the assignment and join us. Everyone is welcome to play along!

4. Please keep in mind that the image you submit for the EMPS assignment, must be your own original photography. NO LIFTING!

Please Note: I have set aside two days during the week for visiting your submissions. Thursday and Sunday, so look for me then!

Participation List for EMPS #117: Historical Places 03/28/11

Karen shows us a little bit of history pertaining to, among others, Wyatt Earp. Sometime I must go across the bay to Colma and photograph his grave site.

Jama photographed an important part of Singapore's past. It's a cautionary tale that I believe more nations should take to heart. Especially the U.S.!

Greg takes us back in time to the 18th and 19th centuries to show us two quite lovely buildings that sit in an
Moravian village. Go, have a look!

Recently, Ruth made a day trip to Sonoma, Ca, and she found a statue that chronicles the Bear Flag Revolt of 1846! She also provides us a glimpse of one of my favorite subjects, a California Mission!

I apologize for not commenting on your assignment entries this past week, but on top of all the unpacking that we are still doing, I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel a couple weeks ago and it is making my online pursuits nearly impossible. :( I will know soon if it will take surgery to restore the feeling in my thumb and hand. I will keep you posted! I did see all your entries and I really appreciated all the different perspectives!

Well done everyone! See you next Monday!
