Weekly Photo Challenge: Old
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have loads of photos of old stuff!
First up here is my old bear, Mid.
Mid is short for Middle Teddy; I had a Big Teddy and a Little Teddy too. Like Goldilocks, I found the middle sized one the most suitable and carried Mid with me everywhere, as you can see. Mid aged rapidly from new to old and now watches me as I gradually catch up…
This tree from the churchyard at Brailsford, Derbyshire, is very old:
It’s so old it has chain coming out of it!
The chain looks pretty old too.
But which is older, the tree or this cross shaft?
This is a thousand years old and is the base of what would have been a tall stone cross. The little warrior is surely too cute to be a Viking!
Here are some more cute and crazy medieval carvings from Derbyshire, this time inside Wirksworth church. The carvings are much older than the church and were incorporated into the fabric of the church when it was rebuilt.
My favourite is the anteater on acid in the bottom right!
Old stuff certainly isn’t boring! 😀
