Before there was plastic… there was metal… and metal rusts — and rust gives us photo tweakers a whole lot of fun! Found in the Midland, CA ghost town.
As much as I like to play around with my photos, this one is pretty much straight out of the camera…it is as I was perceived it when I took the shot.
I took a brief break from my book reading to run to Blythe, CA with Carl. We stopped for a coffee (That’s us in the reflection) then we picked up some delicious bread & bagels and headed back to Quartzsite, AZ.
(What am I reading that is so all consuming? THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy. I finished book 1 and now on book 2…)

This is Carl. He’s my best friend… and today is his 64th birthday. Here, in this photo, we are in Blythe, California (20 miles west of Quartzsite, AZ) enjoying a treat at Starbucks before picking up some groceries. A bit of a mundane birthday, but at least our weather is improving and the sun is back.
