Photography – Seen Better Days!

Lens Artist photo challenge # 168

This week’s host Tina invites you in exploring places and things that have seen better days!

Vagaries of time

tale of withering beauty

skeletal whispers

Back then, I am sure this typewriter typed at lightning speed, bringing out emotions on paper!

What a beauty she must have been in her hey days!

The green elixir today dies a slow death at the hands of man!
Ah, it must have dressed many a beautiful ladies back in time!
The primeval soul of the ruins, today holds many a secret within them!

    A beautiful poem, Radhika and what a beautiful collection of old pictures that have gone away from our world. I remember I learnt shorthand and typing on a similar typewriter.

    Terrific post Radhika – loved the typewriter and sewing machine especially. You’re the only respondent who thought of old equipment, which is perfect!

    Love the pics, and the haiku, Radhika. 💛 I actually have a typewriter like that, not quite as old though, in my office. A decorative piece. ☺️

    This is such a precious collection of pictures and your words bring back the emotion. I grew up with the sewing machine in every house around me. The typewriter was a sudden demise in time by the time I got to the age that I would need it – that is how I feel. Beautiful haiku too.
