This week it is Leya’s turn to challenge us with:
Are you one of those who love things weathered or worn? I am. I love driftwood, old houses, old furniture, toys, the grey cottages up north – things with patina. Clothes with a story – leather jackets, jeans. And people? Only your fantasy sets the limit!
This week’s challenge is Weathered and/or Worn.
I immediately thought of this set of photos when I saw the challenge title this week. They are of a barn roof near the Men-an-Tol in Cornwall, each time we visit the weather has taken its toll on this roof and the surrounding buildings a little more, just as I am a little older each time. Every time we walk this path this roof catches my attention, have I every reached out to touch it with anything other than my sight, I cannot remember, it looks so rough yet I feel I want to experience the feel of its weathered and worn texture under my finger tips, well there will always be next time. I realise that I may have shot myself in the foot with this one as someone is now bound to choose ‘rusty’ as a topic, but oh well, they were the first photos to come directly to mind!
