Dale offers the prompt “picturing the past” for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.
The top photo is an old house preserved in a park in Illinois. I imagine it is sometimes open for tours, but I have only looked through the windows.
In the bottom photo is a bookshelf I made myself. I use it for old books I bought decades ago. They are mostly books on mathematics which is what I studied. They are also mostly unread. I picked a photo where the titles were blurry, since what I did read back then is now blurry in my mind and I have no longer any desire to make it clearer.
