Turn


To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven
~The Byrds
1965

Taken from Ecclesiastes 3

The photo was taken of our detached "garage" that lies at the back of our property.
It's a worn-down ugly old building that needs to come down
but has a few qualities worth photographing.


Always look at the bright side

Worn down ugly can sometimes be very beautiful, and this IS.

Chasity this is a beautiful post, I love the message behind the photo. I sure hope that you find a new home for parts like this when you take the old building down.

I heard this song on the radio late one night earlier this week and I was going to google it to find the song, I didn't know the Band nor the name of the song so you've saved me from trying to find it! Thank you ever so much.

Have a fantastic day.

There is beauty in age, but it takes a certain way of seeing to find it. This is beautiful, thanks for seeing it!

Loved you blog and photos. Stunning

Lovely photo, lovely post. What a flashback, though...The Byrds! I remember riding down Glenstone Avenue in Springfield, Missouri with this song on my friend's car radio!

I just found your blog, and have spent some moments enjoying your artwork. I love your photography, especially your subtle and creative use of textures and other editing tools. You are very talented, and I'll return!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn't it? I think old & rusty can be a beatuiful thing;)

Bevy said...

Goodness if the rules are to tear down the old and worn I'm outta here. There's a nostalgic presence of mind associated with those images, things that say Grandma and Grandpa, family ties, we need those in our life as well. Such beautiful shots. Take Care AJ
