Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

I like colour and patterns, so weathered things fascinate me. These pictures were all taken in the American South, from top to bottom: Jackson, Mississippi; New Orleans, Louisiana; a hamlet in the Arkansas Delta; Austin, Texas.

    1. Did you mean the building behind the wagon (a cotton gin building, although I’ve no idea what that means – unless you can make gin out of cotton) rather than the garage wall?

  1. I, too, especially like the horse’s head. It would like very nice in my garden. 😉

  2. OH MY GOODNESS! That hitching post is from my ancestors foundry in Alviso! I have a pair of reproductions that were made into desk lamps. I have not seen one so far away. I see them around here. They have an weird history, which is far less glamorous than your picture; so I will not share it here.
