Old & Rusted

Sunday, May 22, 2011

it's true, i just cannot get enough of old things.
rusted things.
banged up things.
the more chipped and faded, the better.
i love old signs and typography.
looking at other people's blogs and flickr streams i am often envious of those that get to photograph 
big, cool cities every day, full of so much character and so much going on all the time.
the buildings, the architecture...you would see something new every day, it would never get old.

but there is no big city for this girl.
so i improvise.
doors, old mailboxes, trucks and motel signs.
old buildings and houses...you can find something anywhere.
notice all of the blue that pops up everywhere?
it's true, i am definitely drawn to blue.
and how much fun would it be to go antiquing in one of those old trucks?
yes, please!

hope everyone had a great weekend.
we had a lot of fun in iowa.
we did go to the american picker's place on saturday--more on that
 and our weekend away over coffee on tuesday though.
'night y'all.
