My choice for each Members photo that Participated in this Months Exhibition of Old Relics Theme & Composition tech.
It's Dissapointing as 11 members have missed out this Month as it is a very Exciting theme. It made it a lot simpler to choose each photo in which are great & have a lot of sentimental value. I especially very much like the relics that were a gift & that your grandparents owned from around World War II & the touching Stories that mention the sentimental value, the history, museum visits & experience behind capturing these amazing photographs... Well done to each of you & your old relic artwork.
Composition tech & rule of 3rd (golden ratio a 3rd point separation) has been applied brilliantly to the 3rd right side of most of them with that extra hidden element of golden ratio & composition tech in which Jan Vermeer's famous artwork shows off a great example of this thanks to Zdenko's link & to each member of composition tech tagged photos.
I have Thoroughly Enjoyed the opportunity of choosing each members photos who participated in this months theme. What an honor it has been & thank you to the moderators of Shoot & Tell for giving me this opportunity, & especially Zdenko for being patient with me as i have been having major problems with my mobile phone & Opera account

Price of gold is high at the moment. Thus one may want to sell old golden "relics" that don't have even the sentimental value anymore. When doing business with the local goldsmith he gave me the goldsmith loupe when I told him I would need to find one for my hobby of photography. And it works great

A chance to feel that I have been carried back in time and place.

On the Shoot & Tell blog, now we have "old relic theme" Another very interesting but difficult topic for me. Because I don´t store any old thing. Anyway, here is my first attempt. Remember cassette tapes? This is from 1980

The dry relic of gorse, introduced to this land by human settlers, poses in the background like an old relic. The bright orange fungus decorates decaying branches.

A brass, tea bell featuring a figure in Elizabethan dress. Just looked around on the web, and apparently it was made in the early 20th century. This one belonged to my family, but no longer functions. The clapper is gone. I wouldn't be surprised if us kids are responsible for that. I could swear when I first encountered it as a child that it did have a clapper.

This is probably a quite old shoe made of birchbark. They were still used in the beginning of 1900.
