{June 23, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:WORN

Worn….Lots of things come to mind when I think of this word. I think of being worn out after a hard day working or having fun, I think about a favorite pair of flip flops worn time and again until they become worn out. Worn out clothes, worn out walls and worn out pictures fading with the years. The old saying, “That’s my name, don’t wear it out” comes back to me and how I always wondered how you could actually be capable of wearing a name out. Bodies worn out from age or illness appear in my mind and minds worn out from over thinking and analyzing too much. There’s a lot that could fit in this category of “Worn”.

As I have done weekly from the beginning of this challenge, I scoured through photos to find pictures that make me think of this theme. I hope you like the ones I found!

Birthday cake is for being "worn" as well as eating

I did NOT take this photo but it gives humor to the theme of “worn” in a way that makes me smile. This was taken at my youngest great nephew’s 1st birthday party and it always makes me laugh to see it. 🙂

A "Vintage" but definitely not worn out engagement ring 🙂

If you haven’t followed my blog for very long, you may not have known that my engagement ring used to be my husband’s great grandmother’s wedding ring. Therefore, I thought a picture of it fits the “worn” theme in a unique way.

An old "worn" piece of the Berlin Wall(at Ripley's believe it or not in San Antonio,TX)

And last, but not least:

An old Mission in San Antonio, Texas

Even when things are old, worn out and maybe even tattered, I think there’s a certain charm about them that just sets them apart from the new. Worn doesn’t have to be a negative theme, it can be positive! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
