I'm so sorry to hear what has happened to you Colin. Best wishes for the future, and as has been said, perhaps a 'mended' theme will come to you in life.


I'm not sure whether I'll enter this image, but what were the chances of a wandering emu sharing a moment in time on a bridge in London....

So sorry for your break-up. You always looked such a happy bunch climbing those mountains and all.

Let's see what we can add to the misery 😂



Broken fire hydrant.



Broken camera on the bottom of a dry lake.



Broken grave on the steppe.

Very sorry to hear about your situation Colin. I don't have any wise words to offer that will help much in your current situation but as was stated already time is indeed a great healer.

Here’s my three


The best thing that could ever happen to an Austin Maestro. I took this with my all time favourite camera, a Canon T90 using slide film





The former Grand Hotel at Kupari beach resort, Croatia. Known as the Bay of Abandoned Hotels.This is one of five hotels destroyed and looted by the former Yugoslav army..





Its amazing, and a quite tragic, what gets washed up on the beach these days

Very sorry indeed to hear the news, Colin. 

My 3:

 A boat that has seen better days


A broken tricycle in Mongolia



The Tsar’s Bell, in the Kremlin, made so big it could never be used as it cracked. A lot of patience required to wait for all of the tourists taking selfies in front of it to remove themselves

Nothing deep and meaningful, just literal.


Broken step:







It is the first time I have known or seen the Guards breaking step on a bridge.  The Scots regiments have to break step when crossing a bridge because the kilts swinging in unison can cause problems for the bridge.

A volcanic explosion breaks through to the surface of the Earth carrying shattered fragments of incandesent lava and ash into the atmosphere. Volcanoes can be viewed as destructive but they are also constructive, all part of the natural flow of plate tectonics, without which there would be no life on Earth. In other words, sometimes things have to die for rebirth to occur.










The entrance to a lava tunnel with shattered carapace and lava fragments on the ground. The molten lava which once flowed through the tunnel is long gone, leaving behind a shell which will eventually break up and disappear itself. Everything is transient.










Large rock framents on the ground beneath the red chalk cliffs of Hunstanton, Norfolk, England, caused by marine erosion and weathering. Sea level rise will eventually see these cliffs disappear in the blink of a geological eye.

Very beautiful. Nice to see your images, Michael.




Thanks Paulette. I haven't been entering the monthly competitions for a while now and not uploading either. I have loads of images awaiting tagging which I must get around to doing.
