Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 94

Decay of the best kind!

Welcome to the 94th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Decay was the theme and your responses showed that your creativity is definitely not decaying!

This was a truly interesting array of entries, as there was quite a bit of urban decay, growth of penicillin and and incredible amount of fantastic photography!  I learned about trees that I didn’t know and a stunning mosque complex, stupas in Myanmar and lots more.  Thank you for such a wonderful set of contributions!!

Please let all the authors know how much you appreciate their work!

Sometimes decay starts as growth is still occurring…

Out of Eden?

This wild apple was definitely a bit past its prime, as it was still hanging on the branch… we can only imagine what the internal state of this fruit was.  This may have been the flavor that was presented by to Snowwhite or to Eve…

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  • By Sarah kicked things off this week with a rather interesting photo of a Pandanus tree, which was a tree that I had never heard of.
  • The post by the Nomadic Architect brings us to the decaying structure of the domes of the Begumpur Mosque, which look rather unusual.
  • Maria’s post in CitySonnet shares the decay of snapdragons, which uncovers an unusual feature; you should check it out!

  • Miriam’s post in her blog, The Shower of Blessings, takes us all the way to China where some of the roofs need some work!
  • In this week’s entry from ForgivingConnects, Debbie takes a leap of faith and allows old issues to decay into oblivion through forgiveness of self  and others! A wonderful post!
  • Musin’ with Susan shows us what happens when a tomato goes past its prime: penicillin shows up!
  • This week, Photo Roberts Blog finds some interesting objects that show evidence of decay and photographs them beautifully!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Decay

As time goes by

Welcome to Week 94 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  After another week of fantastic posts, it’s time to come up with something to follow up on Old.

Of course, what comes with old age is advancing decrepitude! As we get older, we all feel it, and in the world around us, we get to witness it as Decay.  Of course, decay can take lots of different forms, from the mold on a slice of cheese and the rusting of a bucket to the dilapidation of a building.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to have some fun and capture your view of what decay means to you!  Let your creative minds run wild and capture what speaks to you.

Here is a bit of decay that I came across during my trip to Iceland…

The Once Proud Ship

This image was a detail that I captured of a boat that was parked next to the Herring Era Museum in Siglufjörður, Iceland.  Time has started eating away at this lady of the herring-filled seas.

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

I’m looking forward to your views of decay!
