Readers' photos on the theme worn out.
Each week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "worn-out" and we begin with this image by Stephen Arrandale.
Scarlett MacGillivray: "My worn-out dog lying in the sun after a long day of walking in the Scottish highlands."
Doris Enders: "After the game, the players are worn-out."
Ian Garfield: "While on a trip to the Midland Rail Centre in Derbyshire, I came across this old tarpaulin, which was covering some old rails. It was covered in rusty marks and had tonnes of holes in it, yet it was still being used. I took two shots and converted one to black-and-white."
Daniel Ramsay: "After a long day in Cornwall, my fiancee caught napping. This is taken on 35mm slide film and cross-processed."
Clive Buckley: "No longer trading. Taken at Twin Rocks, [Arizona,] on the route from Monument Valley to Grand Canyon, USA."
Roger Marrison: "This picture was taken last May, in Poznan, Poland. It is an old window in the city's old tram depot that's no longer in use."
Hannah Reilly: "A very sleepy baby monkey. This photograph was taken at the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia."
Gujar Murtaz: "I took this photo in 2007 in central Pakistan, where this worn-out car was being taken to scrap."
Alex Howard: "Used over and over again until one day it gets forgotten and is left to rot."
Lisa Sweeney: "As a child this was my favourite teddy bear. To me he was not just a toy but a companion, comforter and protector of the dark at bedtimes. My dad bought him as gift for my brother Gerry to give to me when visiting me in hospital a few hours after I was born. Teddy and I will be 38 later this year, but I think he is looking a bit more worn-out than I am, although at certain times I'm sure this could be disputed!"
Charlotte Evans: "Taken while on holiday in Greece at my boyfriend's aunt's beach house. It had been a long day and I needed a nap. My boyfriend snuck in and took the shot without me knowing it. That picture is the perfect reminder of our trip."
Jeremy Kruis: "A lady works late into the night making dim sum on Cheung Chau Island in Hong Kong."
Steve Tuck: "A sculler from Reading University crosses the finish line after 2,000m of hard racing at the British Universities and Colleges Regatta held at Nottingham."
Thomas Ley: "The worn-out towpath tunnel on the South Yorkshire Navigation [Canal] at Mexborough."
