    What is it with you two girls…
    Do you and DebraLee Wiseberg go out on weekends just to find these magical images…?
    I look and look and can never find stuff like this as quick as the two of you….
    It make me sooooo jealous….. Grrrrrrrrrrrr

  • LOL!!! Look for a scrap metal business on the internet that is close to your home, phone them and ask if you can drop by and take some macro photos and that you’re an artistic photographer. Smash Repair places are good too, also look for new estate where they are building, they always have metal bins. Now go get some….LOL!!!
