Old suitcase

12/52 for the 52 in Twenty Eleven group

Theme: Old (decayed / abandoned)

I was somewhat at a loss as to what to photograph for this week's theme. To be honest, I'm thinking of new and springlike things at the moment rather than the old and decayed.

To make matters worse, it was an abnormally busy week. From Monday to Wednesday I was out collecting data for my BA Education dissertation and not visiting any locations where there might be old or decaying things. Today and Friday I have to work solidly on marking assignments. Leaving it until Saturday seemed a bit risky.

And then I decided that I would alternate marking assignments with attacking the clutter in the garage...

This is an old suitcase that was originally a 21st birthday present from my aunt. It's one of a matching pair, but the years have not been kind to them. Some years ago they were replaced by suitcases with wheels -- much easier to manage! -- and when I hauled the old cases down off the shelf today, I discovered that the teeth were all falling out of the zip and they had gone mouldy. :(

Basically, the time has come to throw them out.
