This month’s theme of “Abandoned”
comes to us from CDP’s administrator, Peter Hyndman of
(Australia) Daily Photo. The idea came to him because of
the items he finds on the beach after the crowds have gone home.
Peter then got to thinking about all the other sorts of
things that get abandoned in our disposable lives. Living in
a rapidly growing community where there’s no such thing as an
abandoned building, Peter set out to find one for theme day!
“Sunshine Coast” is the name of
the city where Peter lives. Really! He started the blog
in March 2008 on the day the city was formed from three separate
towns. While Peter hasn’t missed a day of posting despite
his particularly – uh, let’s call it “itinerant “ -- life, the blog
isn’t always “live”.
A few years ago after the
CDP portal was hacked, Peter offered to cobble together a temporary
portal while awaiting the development of a permanent portal.
Eventually it became clear that this is the new permanent
portal. We owe Peter a debt of gratitude for keeping the
wonky thing up and running! (Thanks, Peter.)
Before his current life of
renovating his Australian home and cruising the waterways of
Europe, Peter has worked as an architect, builder, sandwich shop
owner, property developer, town planner and other things best
