Travel Theme: Texture

Ailsa has chosen texture this week. I like the different textures of and around this old sewing machine, wood that is decaying, metal that is rusting and stone that is crumbling. I also wonder what stories it could tell us, whose hand has turned the missing handle and how many garments it has helped to create. 

The photo was taken at Sultanhani Caravanserai on the road between Askaray and Konya, in Central Anatolia, Turkey.

  1. The old sewing machine intrigues me. It seems such a rudimentary version of even the one that my sister-in-law has kept in her house. This one belonged to her grandmother, who lived to almost 100. She was born sometime in the mid-1800’s.

I would love to hear from you . . .
