Takes my breath away . . .

A morning spent at a nursery in eastern San Diego County always produces cool results, although most of my photos were primarily of texture and tree bark (don't ask). Old cars and trucks and their attendant rust and peeling paint make me hyperventilate. And a display of wrenches sits gleaming with beautiful patina on an old wooden shelf. Suitcases packed into the trunk of an old car provide a bit of color in an otherwise dark and monochromatic setting. I could live here. Easily. ©Carol Leigh

Yep! I could live there too if it wasn't so far from kids! Glad you are feeling better

Thank you Carol for singing the praises of that wonderful trio: funk, junk and rust. They're woefully under appreciated. There's great beauty in uncommon places. Sam

Make room for guests! This place looks so cool. I see another photo walk on the horizon.

Jan, thank you for taking the time to look and to comment. welcome back home. And Sam? Thou art a kindred spirit in your love of the uncommon places. And to the cryptic "blaf," (took me a while to figure out who you are, you sly thing!), thank you, too, for stopping by. Go Saints! -- Carol Leigh
