Thursday’s Special: Time (or rather, the passage of)

For Paula’s Thursday Special this week, her Guest Challenger Debbie has asked us to come up with images around the theme of Time.

Two images from me to illustrate the relentless passage of time…in nature:

ivy on a wall, seen better days

….and it’s a long time since these instruments were used:

Take a trip over to Paula’s blog for more here.


  1. so artistic, especially the first one, Loved so much. Thank you dear Sue, love, nia

    Well captured

  4. This is very clever, Sue. I love the abstract quality of your first example and the documentary value of the second. I appreciate your contribution.

    • Sue

      Thanks, Paula! The abstract appealed to me yesterday when I took that shot. Glad I used it, as it was going to be two documentary shots originally! 😀

  5. I like the old dials and rusty machine a lot, Sue. It left me wondering what it was used for. Looks like some sort of heating boiler.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Good choices, Sue, particularly liked the vintage dials.

  8. Two great images, Susan.

  9. Both are very nice in very different ways…it would be had to pick a favorite here. Quite well done!

  10. Both nature and man fall victim to nature in the end.

  11. Your ability to focus on the antique and decrepit never ceases to amaze, Sue 🙂

  12. Oh what amazing images of decay and deterioration, Sue. Perfect for the challenge. 🙂

  13. Your leitmotif – and mine not quite so gloriously – is haunting me. Last night, a chapter called “Abandon” in Rebecca Solnit’s “A field guide to getting lost”.

    Your photos express the theme beautifully and in two modes. Colour and arrangement are both perfect, as is the decrepit bean-shaped gleam on the circles in the second one. What an archive of decrepitude you must have.

  14. Great texture in each shot Sue, just lovely 🙂

  15. Both are fantastic, but that ivy shot is really special!

  16. Two great interpretations Sue. The first is an inspired choice and I just love the second shot with all those colours and textures

Over to you...
