Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
~Confucius

Sometimes I like to collect pieces left behind with my camera.

  2. these are fantastic! really loving the b+w. it makes things seem cleaner, and yet you focus on the texture and shapes of things more, i find.

  10. A perfect quote for your lovely images - abandoned things always have a certain silence don't you think? It's as though they're holding onto their untold story, quietly accepting their abandoned state...

  13. The empty billboards and abandoned lampshade: stunning.
    The Confucius quote came just at the right moment.
    Thank you, also, for the Ken Robinson reference, below.
    And really, just thanks for showing up, time and again, with these lovely little glints of small things of interest and beauty. They add so much to my life, and I'm not sure I've ever mentioned that. I appreciate it.
    Cheers,
