Objects get made, used and then discarded. In the end, everything returns to its elemental origins.
I love this stuff, thank you.
You didn’t have a picture of my knee caps!
Makes you wonder if all humans died today, how long it would really take for there to be 99% no trace of us from just walking around and looking. (Always be some under-earth stuff for millions of year.)
This is one of my favorite post topics! When I ‘stumbled’ across your blog the first time, I believe it was one on rust and decay also. There was a different photo of that Bennett School for Girls, which piqued my interest and I spent hours researching that beautiful building. I would love to have one of the phone booths, that ice cream truck is the bomb and how cool to have two perspectives of that big grounded ship.
I find it interesting that Oddman tells of his bad back and comments that he is not 23 anymore and the next day he is offering up a collection of RUST AND DECAY! Do I detect a deep psychological association here?
I said to the wife the other day …..”when did I get old”?
She replied ……”when you reached 50″
I retorted …….”why didn’t you tell me”?!!!
She replied ……. “I wanted to hold off on the whining for as long as I could”
Alas it is our mortal lot in life to get old….rust……decay.
I enjoy going into deserted places long before it became the fad that in some areas it has become. When the wife and I first met our hobby was going into the country and into deserted farm houses and barns. I could write a book on the strange things we found. However there are fewer of those buildings anymore…..they’re torn down, plowed over or new buildings built in the same location.
Rust and decay is a two fold feeling. There is a ‘romantic’ flavour to it as one looks back at what use to be and there may even be memories attached. Then there is the other feeling……sadness……that they have been abandoned and forgotten.
Hang in there Oddman……””””’rest”””” that back. I’ve been there and it’s the only real answer.
I love these posts! I would love to know the stories behind some of them especially the vehicles that were left behind and the reason for it. Also, I would love to know how a bulldozer happened to be left on cliff by the ocean. Great post and very thought provoking. 🙂
As my grandpa told my mom, ever get old, but he forgot to tell her how not too get old. Maybe it’s how we think and view life to determine of we feel old or young. Something to think about.
Rest your back, and don’t over do it.
Now I am going to make some breakfast, and listen to the weather since we are getting more rain.
Have a good one,
