Lens artist’s photo challenge # 38: Weathered or Worn

I am very late posting for this one, but I have been away, and this is a prompt right up my street! I have posted many images of decay on this blog, and here are some favourites and a recent one.

First, a very weathered old slate mine in North Wales, that was one of my earliest images of decay, taken in my late teens. Just wish I had taken more:

Rust and decay, Manod detritus

A seriously worn old balcony and window in Craco Vecchia:

Propped up, Craco

An old, weathered door in Matera, Basilicata, Italy:

Detail, Matera

And a recent image of a dilapidated roof in Porto, some tiles falling off, and rotting timbers left to wind and weather, wonderful textures:

  5. Thank you for joining in, Sue! You are the master of beautiful decay – and these are just wonderful. In fact, it is impossible to choose a favorite. Fortunately you have given us all of them!

      Yes, that’s one of my favourites. I had a lovely break, and I’m easing myself back, not many posts until next week, I think

  7. Lovely images Sue and I love the theme, a personal favourite with plenty of beauty and character. MM 🍀

  8. Welcome back Sue. Hope you had a really enjoyable break. Lovely shots; I especially like the blue door with that pop of red.

      Many thanks, Su, I had a great break, and am taking it a bit slowly still…. Glad you like my blue door, one of my all-time favourite images. It just worked!

  9. Welcome back and love the Porto roof – texture and shape and so much to take in
    And the orange bit of plastic fence on that door .??? You find the coolest things
