The Sunday Creative - Timeworn

I loved this weeks prompt (and not just because it fit so well with my weekend jaunt to the Lexington Cemetery.)  There is so much beauty that can be found in objects which have weathered the elements for years.


I found these tombstones at the cemetery, time has completely worn away the name and any other markings but left behind a beautiful patina of age.  I love that these slabs continue to stand marking the final resting place of someone, even after the years have worn away the marking.

I can't get enough of Ray LaMontagne's latest album - it's on frequent repeat and his "Old Before Your Time" is amazing (and fitting.)

That looks like a perfect representation of the theme to me. Your pictures are beautiful! Even if sometimes they are of old weather-worn tombstones in a cemetery!:)

Oh..I just love this song. Perfect for today!! And your cemetary images is wonderful!!

with your love of songs and great gift of finding them I should imagine it would be so easy for you to do a theme based on a line of a song. I did see somewhere a woman had done a beatles song every day - the long and winding road, yellow submarine........
