Time/Age

As time moves on, all things age.

Whether that results in a decrease in performance or appearance, really does depend on the degree of maintenance applied.  For example, Michael Phelps has now won 25 medals, 21 gold, over a span of four Olympics.  Much work has been done in order to make that happen.

On the other hand, the photographs here are from Oregon Ridge, a park I have visited many, many times and have documented over the past decades.  There is not much left of the Boarding House buildings now, time and age have exacted their toll, as there has been minimal effort applied to their upkeep.  If interested, there are multiple posts about Oregon Ridge through the years herein-click on the “Architecture” link to the right to find them.

I am usually accompanied by a sense of melancholy when walking around Oregon Ridge-it is a place that, for me, makes time and age an acute experience.

Take care.
