More Effects of Elements and Time

WEATHERED appeals  to me cause I’m  finding a lot of photos in the archives to post.

  2. All lovely and weathered. I too am a fan of peeling paint and rust. I see we have that in common! You have a lovely blog here Ruth. I shall try and pop in more often now we have met 🙂

    • Thank you for your good words, Jude. Yes,peeling paint and rust catch my eye. Glad you visited today and look forward to many more exchanges. ❤️

  3. I have fond memories of my family and I visiting the Conneaut Amusement Park in my pre-teen years.

  4. Oh how we love these photos. Not only the vintage items but also the locations elicit a fondness that I cannot fully explain. Here’s one memory of many. As you know my father was from Brooklyn. On one occasion we went to Coney Island and Steeplechase Park. My sister and I road on the parachute jump. Many years later I drove past the long ago closed park.The rusty skeleton of the parachute jump was still standing. I have seen it in photos since. Maybe one of yours? Next time you reminisce about the boardwalk at Conrey Island think Knish. I know that you wil know and that you will smile. Enjoy the sunshine on this great Sunday.

  5. Weathered sometimes makes me feel sad. As your photos show many of the weathered items are no longer in use.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
