I was going to attempt to find some relics in the barn, I know there are some good ones but time was running short.

Thanks guys.

No barn for me on this one. These belong to a cobbler and pedorthist I know (storefront display).

Kinda interesting as I think about it. He still uses several machines that are actually around +/- 100 years old. Yet, they are anything but a relic as he uses them daily and he'll likely never replace them. They are as strong today as they were the day they first came into his shop (3rd gen owner).

But, while his machines will outlive all of us all ... hopefully, the Polio that caused so many to wear braces such as in the image is largely a thing of the past. I suppose Polio and other afflictions that impair people's ability to walk isn't the most popular or recognizable subject on the minds of today's digitized society ... but I figure some of us may recall it and be able to appreciate its demise.

Really nice image. I like that this could have been taken any day in the last 80-100 years. A really cool vibe in this image.

Thanks Greg,

Other than a "new" piece added to the window every now and then ... this image has been available to the public for many, many years by just walking down the sidewalk. No telling how many times I've walked by it and never bothered to shoot it, till now. I took this one at night after the store was closed.

Fascinating capture, Rusty! I think this is a top contender this week.

All the best,

Endre

Thanks guys, glad you like it ... you probably like it better my original thought @ a self-portrait. I was kinda surprised that no one went there (old relic/dinosaur self port) just for fun.

That's how I feel some days walking in the present. Thanks for the reminder, Rusty. Very creative and nicely done. The processing is spot-on.
