Photo prompt round-up: Worn #writephoto

Thank you Sue for a most inspiring writing challenge for this past week! 🙂

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Facelift or healing

Disguising the deepest wounds

New replaces old

Time’s inexorable march

Writes inescapable tales


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Bakewell, Derbyshire, a few years ago. The worn steps are typical of many older homes and are a poignant reminder of how many feet have passed that way and how many stories the old stones have witnessed. I was particularly struck by the incongruity of the two new steps that have replaced the originals, their surfaces as yet unmarked by time and experience.


Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors. A new prompt will be published later today. As always, I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up next Thursday.

All the posts are listed…

    • Yeah, the stories! I didn’t take the photo. It’s another great image provided by Sue Vincent for the challenge. It’s so inspiring. 🙂


  1. The imperfections created by time always fascinate me as well. I guess it’s part of accepting our mortal humanness.
