Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168 – Seen Better Days

Tina has asked us to explore places and things that have seen better days.

In the image above, we discovered this abandoned boat on the beach in Washington State. Did it wash ashore after it sank or did someone just abandon it there?

In the next photo we know what happened to the red sailboat. A strong hurricane washed it into the marsh in coastal Georgia. We don’t know where it came from but someone eventually was able to tow it away.

Alaska and Colorado still have some buildings and rusty equipment that are leftover from the gold mining days.

The Honeymoon Cottage in Cedar Key, Florida was once a destination cottage that stood on stilts over the water. Over the years, storms took their toll on the building until now the only thing left is a place for the birds to perch.

  1. Wonderful collection, Beth. I love your first image. The name Shanghai painted on it tells a great story/mystery. The honeymoon cottage also caught my eye. Wonderful details and images. Enjoy the weekend, too.

  2. Wonderful selections, Beth! I love the angle you took for the first image, the mining camp tells its story, and the last one is a great shot!


    1. Thank you! So glad you enjoyed the photos. I love being around water and looking at both the old and new boats. The old ones are interesting to see but it makes me sad to see the ones that have blown ashore from a storm.
