    This is perfect Ellen! I love the perspective you took this from, the spiderweb crack in the passenger window lends a hint of it’s demise and yets it’s resilience, and the weathered rust patina tells as they say “The rest of the story”. Brilliant shot!

  • Thank you for following the link here, Steve. You have such a gift for words, I couldn’t have written a better description.
    Cordially, Ellen

    I do not know why we see beauty in decay, but I certainly see it

  • Let’s just call it patina – evidence of time passing on a bygone era. It has its charm.
