OK, it's January 2017. Depending on who you ask, it's a month named either for the two-faced Roman god Janus (who looks both backwards and ahead) or for the Latin word for "door" (since it's the entry to the new year).

But either way, January is the first month of the Julian and Gregorian calendars, and as such we often look back (on prospects drear) or ahead (to think and fear). So, for auld lang syne, let's have a theme of "Old and New". It could be either one, or maybe both at once. Is it an antique artifact? Or a new baby? The same baby holding a priceless antique? Who knows, as long as it provides some artistic inspiration?

I was inspired by this New Years's Day sighting. A "ghost sign" from the old "Fire-Proof Hotel Bray, Rates From $1.50". (Of course, this precedes the official announcement of the theme, and is therefore disqualified, posted only for your inspiration and amusement.)



Same rules (copy-pasta from before):

Photos must be taken during this month (after theme is announced?)
Photos must be taken by the posting member
Photos must be taken with a camera phone
Users post only one photo per entry
Users can change the entry only once
Users must name the phone they used (software would be nice too?)

Last three days of this month are for voting. Have fun and enjoy.

(Please forgive my Burns-infested monologue, BTW.)

Hey! Glad to see the competition still going strong, I've been so busy with university and whatnot so haven't been able to even log in to TMO. I have to finally participate after so long.

No entries yet? Haha here's an image I took earlier this year while on holiday.
I went to a town that has existed for a long time, yet recently revamped development for tourist attraction. Very nice place if you guys have the time to visit. It's Georgetown, Penang.

Taken on my OnePlus X, no further edits done.

No, I do not have the idea of artistic inspiration at all ???

And... here, is no antiques, or new babies, or babies with antiques, nor buildings to mention...

But here is my picture, taken with N9:
