This is my first submission on WordPress photo challenge.
The theme this week is ‘Weathered’.
What was my interpretation? I thought of some fascinating people with lined, leathery and weathered faces I had met over the years and photographed. It was tempting to share them but decided on Reichenau Mission in a small off the grid town of Bulwer in Kwa Zulu Natal.
The mission, built in 1886 by German Trappists boasts a large church with impressive stained glass windows, a rural school and also a large old mill. Many of the buildings are still in use, but some have been abandoned and this is where I found some wonderful photographic opportunities.
