  1. Good question! No answer but great shots! I guess the visual appeal makes the difference.

      Thank you, Eva. I guess things that jump at my visually, do so for a reason. None other then that should be noticed. By one that has a camera. 🙂 ~amy

    How about a cosmetic line called “Old Rusty”? . . . with a slogan “For the Character in You”. : ) (or something like that) ; )

  4. Interesting muse. I can’t not respond. Perhaps the old be omes more interesting. Whereas the old person is denied a bit because of our fear of death?

    Artists are drawn to beautiful things. Old are mostly beautiful because the older they are the more they have to tell us. 🙂

    Writers, photographers are drawn to the unusual, the something that stands out for them – even if others don’t always see it at first.
    Interesting photos.
