Call it antiquated, weathered or wabi sabi, there is something so appealing about time-worn artefacts – though our own ageing is often less than picturesque or captivating.

The graveyard shot is so atmospheric.
Someone just lit a bonfire as I was taking photos there 😀

Wabi Sabi??! Wonderful images this week Laura
many thanks Tina and apologies due from Akismet for confining your comment to spam 😐
perhaps picking up on the wabi sabi art of imperfection – certainly the spam netter does make mistakes but not too often
Beautiful collection. I wonder why it is we don’t find ourselves as appealing when we are showing the signs of time?
thanks Robin – I think we humans have a Peter Pan complex – after all ageing means the graveyard ultimately 😐
I especially like the graveyard capture!
I had to do a few shots as the sun kept disappearing and the smoke drifted in and out – thank you Amy, was pleased to get that photo in the end
Takes patience for the right time for photography. 🙂
indeed Amy – it’s more like catching fish than butterflies
The graveyard shot is atmospheric…but all beautiful examples of what we consider appealing – and thoughts of why our own ageing is not. Though we may think it beautiful in others, but not in ourselves. Both my grand mother and my mother were/is ageing beautifully with many happy wrinkles. I am not that fond of my own.
Happy with your prompt Leya but weary of my worn and weathered appearance!
You shouldn’t be! Easy to say, but we have to accept certain things, don’t we…
Acceptance is the key to contentment!
That graveyard shot is a perfect example of weathered or worm. Lovely choice.
thank you Patti – I like to take photos in graveyards for just that look
Lovely collection. I love it how the last one goes so well with the quote. 🙂
many thanks Manja – I’m reading a lot of Dylan Thomas at the moment and was pleased with that photo match
