Challenge 162 - Decay

Challenge 162 - Decay
Nice and simple. I want to see photos of decay. I leave the interpretation up to you, but to give a starter for 10, decay is all around us, be it urban, industrial or natural. Go out and grab up to 2 considered images of what confers decay. I like quirky. I like classy. I like technical. I like shots that involve thought. So please shoot accordingly.
As per last comp, i'd like to continue the no-shoebox modification which means you have 2 weeks to capture something specific for this competition

enjoy!

Rules

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 800 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed during #150, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

The salon competition ends at 23:59 on Monday, 5th May, 2014.

Re: Challenge 162 - Decay

A sad example of residential decay. It's my nearest neighbor in Vermont. This place burned nearly forty years ago and again a few years later. The town has done nothing to force him to tear it down.

Re: Challenge 162 - Decay

My two tries:

Corrosion


Inside an old langoustier - lobster fishing boat.

Decay In Progress


Never thought that I would take a photograph of compost! It looks almost like an impressionist painting but no filters were applied.

Re: Challenge 162 - Decay

4 days left people....

enough time for some ripe fruit to start rotting
enough time to grab a macro of that frayed shoelace
enough time to get that shot of the graffiti strewn wall down the road
