At a construction site,… the marks made by equipment tires, footprints of work boots, wheelbarrow marks and scratches of materials being dragged over the ground of this dirt covered passage way look like the heiroglyphs or cave markings of a long forgotten civilization.

Captured on the World Wide Photo Walk 2010 in Boston, MA.

    I know what you mean by “they’re callng me…” I feel the same and I’m getting farther and farther behind – just can’t keep up with myself! At least I’ll have a buffer for when the weather turns lousy coming autumn/winter… ;)

  • I think I have enough for the duration! Bring on the blizzard of the century!! As long as the computer is working, I’ll be happy as a clam! hehe!
