Photo prompt round-up: Worn #writephoto

Facelift or healing

Disguising the deepest wounds

New replaces old

Time’s inexorable march

Writes inescapable tales


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Bakewell, Derbyshire, a few years ago. The worn steps are typical of many older homes and are a poignant reminder of how many feet have passed that way and how many stories the old stones have witnessed. I was particularly struck by the incongruity of the two new steps that have replaced the originals, their surfaces as yet unmarked by time and experience.


Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors. A new prompt will be published later today. As always, I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up next Thursday.

All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!

Pingbacks do not always come through… if you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.

An invitation to writephoto writers…

As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto writers to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! Click here for details.

Come and join in!

Thank you to all Contributors!
