. . .took a break







at least from taking pictures of ruins, rust, and remains. . .












I've thought it before, that I would quit looking for old nasty stuff . . . but then I come up with pictures like these. Enlarge them to really get the effect that I do.













I wonder if taking these pictures have any effect on how I paint. . .









and many times I wish I could paint the photograph.







I doubt I'll be able to resist looking for rust, ruin, remains.

Personally, I love your rusty ruin photos.

Lovely shots, rust and decay are certainly very seductive.

I don't blame you-- I couldn't resist all that rust and ruin either-- and I do see the influences in your paintings which I think is great.
