March Theme Day - Aging


The Monthly Theme for March 1 is “Ageing”. 

This theme has been suggested by Julie from "Sydney Eye", who is attracted to all things past their prime, for obvious reasons.  The "eye" lingers over rust, and mould, and decay, as lovingly as the eye of a mother lingers over the form of her new-born.

Julie's fascination with ageing over-flows into a fondness for aged places, and things.  She keeps her eye firmly trained upon the past, and admits to tut-tutting the old adage "Those who forget the past, are condemned to repeat it."  Many a time has a simple photograph of a building, or an intersection, or a wrought-iron gate, morphed into a full historical paean to a long-forgotten cranny deep within the heart of colonial Sydney-town.

Not one for glamour and glitter, for bright lights, or shining stars, Julie is fascinated by hands gnarled by hard, physical work, like that of a gardener.  With that in mind, she shares with us this image of a blowsy Hydrangea head, the "Norma Desmond" of her garden bed running down the side path.

Actually, it will probably be first on Facebook, or Twitter, or maybe you'll hear about it from the nice old guy next door. Whatever the case, if you have news to share, how about sharing it with us, so we can share it with everyone and actually make these pages useful?
