The years condemn

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 wrecks and sprats and shells and fishbones, whale-juice and moonshine and small salt fry dished up by the hidden sea.”
― Dylan Thomas, Under Milk Wood

    1. 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

  1. Beautiful collection. I wonder why it is we don’t find ourselves as appealing when we are showing the signs of time?

    1. 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

  2. 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.
