Images & Words #91- I'VE SEEN BETTER DAYS

Hi there everyone!

Welcome to week #91, and lovely to see you all again! Mia here and for this week I've chosen the theme: I'VE SEEN BETTER DAYS" (thanks Vic). It can be of anything that you think "has seen better days"...

Here is a photo
I took last week of something in the neighbourhood that sure has SEEN BETTER DAYS lol. I'm not sure what it was used for in the past...

Lonely days have gone
memories still echo here
of happier times

The rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it.
The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words. Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene.
Posts can either have one word on them, quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through Saturday.
One post per person only please.

It will be such fun to see what you all come up with.



  1. LOL, can I send a pic of me?? I sure have seen better days. *smile*

  2. No Marianne, I'd say you never looked better lol (at least judging from your avatar)

  3. That's how I felt this week, but luckily my laptop is back so I can participate this week! I have lots of possibilities for this theme, but it's late here so I'm gonna sleep on it and come up with something in the morning. Good night :-)

  4. LOL, I knew someone would say that, cause I did he he he

    Come on now Heather, you've got heaps of photos for this theme, I just know it!!!

  5. I know, I never get time to play..but this theme just screams my name from within..brb :)

  6. Ha ha ha Heather, I knew it just would within my own mind...

  7. I chose a picture which suited the theme, but then my words kinda did their own thing is my contribution...

  8. I had to tweak that pic..better now...night night x

  9. Nite nite Heather, sleep well!!! The new pic is amazing!!

  10. cool glad you like it..smiles...

    night night for the one hundredth time...LOL

  11. Mia that is a good photo for this theme. It could be an old shed for some machinery ie a pump or even an outside water closet although if you had looked inside you probably would have seen the evidence of that. lol.
    Love the photo and the theme.
    Got one for you here.

  12. It's just sitting on it's own in the middle of a field Milli. So a bit of a mystery....

  13. Looks like an old outhouse ????? Wonderful for the Theme. Will be back later with mine, just waiting for Michelle, she is coming down from Zim, we are going out for lunch and I will take pic on the way. Have just the thing in mind.

  14. What a poor, dilapidated house. But I'm sure it remembers the happier days. :)

    Here is mine:

  15. Marianne, it's a lot bigger and taller and on it's own in a field, so doesn't make sense for an outhouse unless it's for the sheep lol... Can't wait to see your pic!

  16. I am always pleased to look at that mysterious house.... great theme, Mia!

  17. Here's mine. I'm sure I have used this picture before, but can't remember where. Please forgive me if it was here, but it fits the theme so very well.

  18. awwww....delapitated, abandoned buildings are always sad.....I sent it a hug...LOL

    Nice choice for your theme Mia !

  19. Yes it sure needs a hug Linda lol, thanks!

  20. Awesome topic Mia and love the old rusty building. You know my love for rust..... however I thought I would do something a little different... so here it is

  21. It has been a busy, yet boring, foggy couple of days since I got my camera out. But instead of something new, I picked something that still sticks with me on this one. I often wonder how could this moment have helped me find the partener of my life time. I would have gone running away and never looked back just thinking about what she put up with. LoL so here is my " Ive seen better days"

    I have so many to compair it with now. Thank you. C!

  22. this photo really speaks to me, I love it!
    great theme, hard to pick...again!

  23. Sweet! Sure wish I could go out and shoot some old stuff. Another gray dreary wintry day here. Took another avenue.

  24. Great theme, Mia! Thank you for hosting. I love your haiku and photo.
