~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #99: Old and New ~

The challenge from Amy this week is to show both old and new in our photography.

Version 2

A hand-forged metal wagon wheel leans against a contemporary building.


Circa 1850, Chinese water bucket hosts a living plant.

Version 2A hand carved Carousel goat (circa 1915), at the Albany, OR Carousel Museum. In the background, the painting workshop with a nearly finished (also hand carved) dragon on the left.


Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.


Sending blessings to Amy, Tina, Leya and Patti. Thank you.

    Old and new combined in details – that is the best way to view them, according to me. Well found, Lindy! Often big buildings do not go well together over the years. are these from your home? I treasure my old things from ancestors and love to put them together with my new things. Especially like the old bucket and the plant. Somehow it is grounding…letting the new grow out of the old.

    Beautiful interpretation, Lindy! I love the fist image, the Chinese water bucket is very special. and the last one is quite unique. Thank you for joining in. 🙂

    Love these new and old shots, Lindy. The bucket…the museum. Is that the carousel museum in Connecticut? It’s on my long must-visit list!

    Excellent. That painted dragon is a beauty.

  5. I think I may have mentioned this before, but we were in Albany last summer and did not know about the carousel! I am so bummed that we missed it. (It was a rather challenging trip, and we missed quite a lot of things in Oregon I would like to have seen.)
