What happens when you mix a party banner with some real life thoughts? The answer: really cool projects like this one by Peyton Fulford. You may already know this project, but if you don’t here’s a small intro from the 20-year-old Georgia based author:
‘Abandoned Love’ is a participatory photo series in which I had people from all over the world (Australia, UK, USA) on Tumblr send me private thoughts, diary entries, text messages, etc to which I then created into banners and placed on abandoned buildings.
As you may know I’m a romantic at heart, and by romantic it doesn’t necessarily means I only like cute stuff, but I like heartbreaking stuff too. So when I saw the pictures I was kind of caught.

Sometimes when you say hello and
Take me in your arms
You hold me strong and I get this rush
Lyrics by AlunaGeorge.
So, before my friends keep misunderstanding these posts (you know, the ones where I type down some lyrics I really like), they are part of a new series I’m starting here, nothing to be taken very seriously! Have an amazing night!
If we never meet again
If we only seem to lose
If you had to turn it in, what would you choose?
If we have a chance tonight
If you wanna wait to see
If you wanna get it right, what’s stoppin’ me?
Lyrics by Bishop Allen.
Porque me gustaste desde que te vi y supe que eras para mí. Porque aunque eres un completo extraño, siento que ya te conozco. Porque aunque tenga miedo, me lanzaría a lo desconocido contigo. Porque sigo pensando en ti después de más de un mes. Porque fuiste un gran riesgo que tomé y no me arrepiento.
Porque si, te quiero así.
Because I liked you since I saw you and I knew you were for me. Because even though you’re a complete stranger, I feel like I already know you. Because even though I’m afraid, I’d jump into the unknown with you. Because I’m still thinking about you after over a month. Because you were a huge risk I took and I don’t regret it.
Just because, I like you.
