Weathered And Beaten

Today, I am participating in The Daily Post’s weekly photography challenge : ‘weathered’.

As I was contemplating ‘weathered’, this the first image that came to mind.  It was taken in 2015 when we were in Alabama.  It doesn’t look as weathered in the image as it did in my head.

I made a very quick pass of the rest of my pictures for that year and found thirty that would qualify for ‘weathered’.  I narrowed those thirty down to six.  Okay, eleven.  Not counting the three at the beginning.

Weathered, like the old, almost crumbling apart, plastic ball that Otis found …

… Or the dinosaur bone he found when we took the ball away from him …

… Or the many dilapidated cabins we find in our travels …

… And the old car decorating someone’s driveway …

… Or the weathered wood in that makes our campsite gecko look prehistoric …

… The desert elements are hard on everything, including cars …

… Our Otis strikes again … finding a properly aged toy in Ajo Arizona …

… A weather-beaten and salt water-beaten post perfect spot for resting on …

… An old homestead in the Chiricahua National Monument  in Arizona …

… A broken angel adorning a tombstone at a cemetery in Animas New Mexico …

… And finally, the remains of a ‘lights out’ sign at a abandoned drive-in theater in Ajo Arizona.
