Wild Daffodil hosts a monthly photographic challenge, this months theme is patina which to me is the sheen of age, that lovely smooth, worn feel of wood or metal, even old stone steps that gives a hint of the history an object has witnessed.
Well I had to squeeze in a Lake District photo if I could! This is Derwentwater, the launches run a regular service around the Lake which walkers use like buses. The boats were built in the 1920’s and 30’s and have a wonderful feel about them, layers of varnish polished by thousands of bottoms!
New things can have a nice feel to them too particularly if they are craftsman made. This is a ‘bobbin’ I had turned for an embroidery about Catbells. I love the feel of it. To see more infor about this project, please follow the link to the original post
