“The joy of junking comes not only from a great find, but also from that moment when you figure out how to breathe new life into an old piece.” ~ Unknown.
This weekend the photo challenge from GC’s and my site Weekly Prompts is JUNK.
This is my own response to the challenge.
Each month I browse the IT magazine section in the newsagents and choose the one that appears to be the most interesting. This month I chose ‘WebUser’, mainly because of the recycling ideas.
When I’m due a mobile phone upgrade (cell phone) I normally hang on to the old one; it’s a second browser, a spare camera, or an audio recording device.
What you do with your old equipment, do you find another use or is it simply junk?
Earlier this week, youngest daughter Sophie (pictured below) and I spent an enjoyable hour or so wandering around Decoporium, an underground junk shop. The shop is situated in the Thorp Arch Retail Park, not far from Wetherby Racecourse in Yorkshire England and is approximately forty minute’s drive from my home.
During the Second World War, Thorp Arch was an underground munitions factory supplying the British Army and the Royal Air Force. The factory closed during the 1950s.
An assortment of furniture stores have since occupied the former munitions site, and all underground.
For Sophie and me the fascination on this day was the antique/junk shop and imagining the former lives of all those items that were once lovingly cared for in someone’s home. “When you change the way you look at things; the things you look at change.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dwyer.
