Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Weathered and Worn. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


Show us what is Weathered and Worn..

Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

I thought I would get this out of the way first. Books.

This is Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, but in Dutch translation. I bought it when I was in my teens and it has been read once every year since. Usually when I'm in bed with the flu. I later read it in the original language but strangely enough, the Dutch translation is better. Tolkien himself thought the Dutch translation was one of the best versions around.

I couldn't get the colours right, so converted it to B&W.

I'm hoping to contribute as well (weathered and worn are abundant around my house ).
I quit smoking 6 months ago and I lost interest in photography for a little bit, but I'm starting to get back into it again (photography...not smoking). :-D

Yeah, see, I thought you could do nice things with the theme, place you live.

And well done with the non-smoking, Stina! I quit almost 12 years ago and never looked back.

Nice start to the week, Levina and Bob!

I traded my copy of the Hobbit in Titograd, (which was then Yugoslavia) to a fellow that was learning English.


Nice B/W conversions..

Oh.. I don't know. I'd read it 3 times, it was all I had with me.
I bought a new copy and I have a pin from a country that isn't on the map any longer.
Though Titograd is now in Montenegro :rolleyes:
