A Word A Week Challenge: Old

This week, Sue’s dictionary fell open to the word “Old,” and now we are challenged with finding photographs that fit the theme.

So, because my mother’s birthday would have been Sunday, I’ll start with an old photo of her from around 1947:

Next, a bit of detail from an old light fixture inside the Smithsonian Castle:

Last two are faces of our elders. There is wisdom that comes with the years.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

What are you thankful for? As we’ve discussed previously, that sort of talk gives me great trauma. But, this week’s photo challenge asks us to consider what we are thankful for. While there are many things, I am sure you have no interest in seeing lots of pictures of my family, home, job, health, etc. So, I’ll share a photo I made yesterday, while so many people were out and about making sure America’s retail industry was successful in 2012. We were outside the Old North Church, in Boston, and came across a war memorial, dedicated to American soldiers lost since WWI, and created by British military groups.
