Long live decay

My blogging friend Jeffery Blackwell at Rubber@Road recently posted some beautiful pictures he shot of a rotting Mercury which reminded me of how much I love pictures of things in a state of decay. Without even trying, once gleaming signs and objects of hope and opulence are now symbols of pity, melancholy and irony. One man's eyesore is another's photo op.
