Default May Challenge--Decay

I apologize for being late to post a new challenge, but I just realized I had won. I have often thought it would be interesting to see what the creative minds we have on here might do faced with the challenge of photographing something in a state of decay and either making it beautiful or simply striking. I know the shot that made me think of this challenge, but it is still in my head; I will have to put it in the camera. Thanks for your votes.

Congratulations on a very well-deserved win last month - with some really stiff competition! Also thanks for a very interesting topic. Are we sticking with the usual rules (recent photo, etc.)?

Default Challenge Parameters

I think this is the latest version. Pictures have to be taken with a Pentax or Samsung inter-changable lens camera no more than 90 days ago. Does this include the Q series? Longest side sized to 800 pixels. There are no restrictions on processing.

Default Old yellowing wood bulldozer.

Old yellowing wood bulldozer.


I don't know if this fits the challenge but I almost had to go to the morgue to get this one. More like the news paper morgue then the other kind of morgue. Way back in time you could say.


Old bulldozer in the woods just slowly decaying.

Found this old water wheel up in the Yorkshire Dales.
But am afraid it's too old

Default Snail fodder

The subject of decay here is the object being consumed by the snail which looks as though it could be another snail!
