This ended up being quite a challenge finding something rugged for the week.
The word is quite utilitarian and rough when applied to objects.
I searched alleys.
Looked for scruffy subjects.
Objects which I thought showed toughness and abuse.
More construction sites/alley.
I also looked for urban scenes which I thought portrayed a rough existence.
But in the end, a memory foam placed on a timber bench somehow wins it for me from the multiple interpretations I read from the image.
- The foam acting like a rug on a bench
- the idea of a rugged/tough existence sleeping on the streets
- the uneven terrain of memory foam.
