Thematic Photographic 355 - Old

End of the line (almost)
London, ON
August 2015
A leaf at the end of its life isn't any less worth observing that it was when it was first a bud, or when it was bursting with green-tinged life in the middle of summer, or exploding into reds and oranges with the onset of autumn.

It was August 31st when I saw this particular leaf. Too early for it to die, yet here it was, shrivelled on a branch. I guess it didn't get the memo. Or its calendar and clock needed a reset. Untimely, but very much real.

And still very lovely in its own right, its delicate remains hinting at what it once was.

Your turn: Take a picture that reflects this week's Thematic theme, old. Post it to your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the joy, and feel free to use the Twitter hashtag #ThematicPhotographic to invite others to join in. If you've got more than one pic to share, we encourage multiple submissions through the week, too. Here's where to find more background on how Thematic works. Enjoy, and thanks!

I love when flowers regenerate. They look dead but it's all part of life. :-)

Sad little wilted beauty, still holds a bit of charm, in just the way you shot it. Here's mine

When you reach my age 'old' takes on a different meaning.

I chose one of my favourite old places for this Thematic Photographic, Delphi in Greece.
