Pieces of our past, captured before they melt again into the earth. With items such as these, and old household things which show rust and wear, I sometimes think that that's they way they always were, with those worn spots and the splintered edge. I have to take a second look, and let the years fall away, to see the bright new wood, the shiny-greased axles, the supple leather and un-rusted links of the harness and chain---before the ravages of work and Time.And from here, I can smell the scent of that old shed with its dry dirt floor, untouched by rain for decades, and the patient enduring of the days. You just have a knack for seeing which translates into sculpture and vignette and tableau---a rare gift for recording and preserving. And I feel rich just looking at the images.
Don't have a car...but will hug my Sierra GMC truck! :) Neat pictures as always how you can capture the past like you do. I took a pictue of a wagon on top of a mountain outside of Santa Fe, NM and it really turned out nice and had layers of old paint of red and green. The wagon part was gone but the 4 wheels were still standing. If it could only talk!It was so nice to meet you yesterday and will always treasure my gift! Thanks again! :)
