The beauty of rust

Two of my other finds in my explorations around the old part of downtown Hattiesburg a couple of weeks ago was this Willys Jeep and steam locomotive. The jeep was tucked behind a building and the train is located at the train depot. Rust is taking its toll on the two vehicles.

  2. Marty,

    The colors and siennas and ochres and umbers of rust are a palette all in themselves, and its power to erase the footsteps of people as it accrues---that's a boggling thing.

    We're an hour ahead of you, and I'm thinking of you all now, getting ready for the day---tying a tie, smoothing a skirt, gathering your things and your strength to go out the door together.

    You're all in my prayers, and a Grandma hug around your Sweet Girl, all day long.

  3. Love the beauty of rust...has a lot of character all its own.

  4. Man, I'm sorry I missed this shoot! Great shots

  5. I am simply crazy about your photo of the "Rusty Jeep'. You truly have the eye of an artist.
