Weekly Photography Challenge: Place in the World

This week, share the place where you feel you belong in the world. Or one of them!

I haven’t lived at my mother’s place for well over forty years now, and it’s changed a lot over those years. My dad’s old truck is still there, though – I spent part of my childhood squished in between my parents in that truck – my own place to sit and travel! It’s not going anywhere these days, but the rust and lichen that are overtaking the paintwork look like aerial photos of landscape in some “place in the world”.

Weekly Photography Challenge: Time

Time waits for no one, we all know that, but a person with a camera can try to capture some sense of time passing in pictures, and that is the Weekly Photography Challenge for this week. There is less than a week – and a heavy downpour – between the first photo here and the other two. If only I’d known the fire was going to come, I could have had a “before the fire” pic as well…

I’m also sharing a gallery of photos of the effects of time on a vehicle left to the vagaries of time and weather for years and years. Rust and decay, mainly! Considering where it is, I suspect it got bogged so thoroughly in wet sandy soil, that it was abandoned where it lay. Sad, but so photogenic!
