The old pier at Swanage is a must for most photographers and for good reason, here's my take!
Built in 1859 the old pier was not for Victorian ladies to take the sea air but to load Purbeck stone onto ships to be carried to London.

I have affection to old farm equipment and sites. I am old enough to remember the last work-horses, the day the horse mower was parked for the last time and the first tractor came to my parents farm. How the old uquipment vas changed to be drawn by the tractor and the generations of new mowers and haymaking equipment.

Ayot St Lawrence old church in Hertfordshire is a picturesque ruin, in the village of the same name, due to the strong dislike of the local squire. Sir Lionel Lyde hated the old building, which was visible from his home, and had it replaced in the late 18th century by a Greek revivalist church on the other side of his manor house. The old church was partly torn down for building materials and was partly ruined for 'romantic effect' in the early 19th century - this process only ending in 1999 when the Ames family donated the graveyard to the Ayot Old Church Preservation Trust. Since then the trust has used English Heritage and Heritage Lottery Fund to conserve the ruins and open the grounds. The old church dates from around 1150AD and was originally a nave and short chancel only. It was remodelled in Early English style in the mid-13th century and a small north aisle was added. A north chapel was added in the early 14th century and the chapel was extended. In turn the former north aisle wall was moved further north and continued the line of the north chapel's wall in the early 15th century. The present tower was finally added over the north aisle about 75 years later, probably in the late 15th or very early 16th century.
A wonderful old clock in Rokoko style, an inheritance from my mother. Unfortunately it no longer works and I have no place to stand. Now the clock is waiting in the cellar....

Hello my amazing Flickr friends !!
Today is an orange day at Color my World Daily and the theme at Crazy Tuesdays is old and new. Of course we have Mr. Teddy bear with us to celebrate Happy Teddy Bear Tuesdays.
Mr. Teddy Bear has a dilemma: old or new ? What do you prefer ? New is exacting and cool and so new and so out of usual … New is the change and the challenge to adapt. But on the other hand: old is reassuring, it is what we are use to … Old is comfort and we know what to expect…
When Mr. Teddy Bear realized his old pencil was almost too old to continue to write his exciting adventures, he went pencil shopping… His old pencil was so awesome but those new guys were so shiny and new… Of course the new pencil will have to learn everything from the old one… so there is no question about throwing away the old pencil (this is the hoarder inside of me speaking ;-) !) But the choice was so difficult… New pencils looked so similar… with no distinctive signs, no character and no experience…. The old pencil was very stubborn and had an opinion on everything… but he had also the best stories to tell… the new guys were very « blah » in the eyes of Mr. Teddy Bear…
Eventually Mr. Teddy Bear will choose one new pencil… and he will try to get use to it and to make it his personal pencil… Until it becomes as awesome as his old pencil… And not so new anymore…
So are team NEW or team OLD ?
Me, I’m in the team OLD !
Happy CMWD and happy CT and happy HTBT to all participants !! And for the rest of us : happy day !!
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments / favs/ general support / happy thoughts!! Stay safe and healthy!! And see you soon on Flickr !!

This was originally the school for St Paul's choirboys, built in 1874. It was due to be demolished in a road widening scheme so the school moved to new premises in the 1970's, but the road widening never happened. It is now occupied by the Youth Hostels Association.

Replica of a galleon moored in the Old Town of Gdansk (Danzig) in Poland.
For this fresh September morning the Motlawa river, where the old galleon moored, was very quiet. I took advantage of this time with no wind or a ripple on the water, to catch the old town with it's beautiful reflections.
There were not many people on the riverfront just two photographers like me to admire and capture the moment.

In the 1800s Bergen was Europe’s biggest wooden city, a distinctive city environment with closely spaced wooden buildings, busy streets, markets and alleys. At old Bergen open air Museum you can experience some of this atmosphere and it has today 55 wooden houses, most of which originally stood in the centre of Bergen.
