"Technical Advances"

While hiking the highway to Taos Ski Resort, a dilapidated shed nestled in a stand of trees caught my eye.  The decaying wood was highlighted by a powder-blue door askew from neglect, but regardless of   the weathered condition, its contents were secure thanks to a new, brass combination padlock.  One can only wonder what prized possessions were being safeguarded by this modern security device.  Quite a step up from the rusted, door bolt still in tact.


  1. This is a nice discovery, Jim. Finding art in the ordinary is one of the pleasures of being a photographer. Well composed.

  2. One of my very favorite combinations, and no, I don't mean the combination lock but rusted beauty with intense blue. Something about the complementary colors and the decrepit-yet-fresh look is strikingly beautiful!
