WPC: Recreate

The theme for the Daily Post’s photo challenge this week is repurpose – recycling or re-purposing an object into a clever new use. Well to tell the truth, I am not clever enough to do anything of the sort. But I am clever enough to know and click works of amazing people who are expert at this art 😉

The first to come to mind is of course Nek Chand of Chandigarh’s world famous Rock Garden.

Thank you for visiting and do let me know your favorite re-purposing 🙂

  1. Dahlia, this was such a fun “travelogue” of re-purposed materials! I liked how you asked the reader, what is the arch made of … and then showed the broken light fixtures up close! The figures made of bangles was really fun. Nice!
