I actually prefer the first in its second incarnation. Still pretty, but more peaceful.An waterless pool is a sad thing though.
Sorry EC. I see a table, a chair, and umbrella and drinks being served.
Change and loss always seem overwhelmingly sad.
Hels, and don't we see a lot of it. I like change for the better, but I feel it happens so rarely now.
Wrinkles and failing joints, the land retaking itself from habitation, and the pool well, failed business venture?
Strayer, nicely summed up. It might be as simple as times change.
How things change over time. Trees missing and a deserted pool, sad really.
Margaret, I think the loss of the jetty is the worst thing.
The top one looks as it's still functioning in some for or other.Why do children find it irresistible to spray squiggles on everything?
Big question Cro, and I don't have an answer. And what happened to clever political graffiti?
The first one looks like a back to nature thing going on, the second is sadder.
River, just wait for the finale next week, for the utmost sadness.
When you get used to certain things in life, it is rough to see it change into something else that's unfamiliar. As sad as it is, I like how you've shown what used to be at one time. Hugs, RO
Thanks RO. I have seen many changes in my life. Most are good, but not all.
The water scene minus the people suits me just fine! :)
Lee, I do like the scene with people enjoying themselves. That particular photo is contentious, with some comments along the lines of yours, liking the more natural state.
It's very clever the way they do this Andrew.. as long as I never see one pertaining to myself and the decaying time lapse 😀😀
Grace, don't let anyone get their hands on any of your old photos.
