Well we had one suggestion I saw, so I'll go with it Caladina's Death and Decay.
I'll start things off. I have a hibiscus bush which is perfect for this subject. It has beautiful flowers which only last for a day or so before they deteriorate very quickly. Here's my first example:
Nice image Ray.
A interesting photo for the comp, Ray.
Thank you, Craig. There are more to come.
I will have to put on my diving suit and go for a swim in our back yard to see what fits the challenge.
Here is one I found unexpectedly today. Canon EOS 20D, Canon EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 II IS STM.
I think that it fits the competition description.
I like this one a little more than the the first, you have definitely set the bar, Ray.
Yes, so do I, Craig. I'm just trying to get others to become involved.
C'mon people, what's holding you up?
Rain, oh and some more rain.
I do actually have an idea about this months challenge, but I need to get outside to see what fits the title.
Autumn is well and truly here, and here is one of the last tomatoes that didn't ripen in time to be picked. Along with a greenish one that had no chance. All the plants foliage has died off as well.
Gary you still have a couple of nice tomatoes there that you can eat.
Once the plants get to this stage, they are not so nice to eat.
Drown themin salt and pepper, you will hardly notice
This surely would make a good candidate for 'once alive and now dead'. Shot 8 years ago in Field Museum, Chicago. This is 90% intact fossilized skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex. Sue is its nickname after Susan Hendrickson, discoverer of the fossil. Estimated to have weighed 18600 pounds when it was alive around 65 million years ago.
Interesting shots and info, Sundar.
This is one of those places I would like to see one day but to be honest tthat day is a long way off.
Another T.Rex exhibit. this one from the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Bio-mechanics of these beasts became clear only in the recent past. They never stood upright as believed in the early days of its discovery. Now it is known that it was a crouching posture as seen in this image with the long tail balancing the massive front. It probably had the looping gait of modern day Chicken.
Un tramo de carretera abandonada, donde el puente y otros elementos del edificio se están descomponiendo, tomé esta foto en un viaje en Alaska cuando me subí a la línea White Pass.
thank you very much Craig
