Images here appeal to me in any random way. If you like something, you like it. There's no need to justify or explain the whats, whys, wheres or hows; they just are, "because".

On the coast during fishing season there are a lot of structures built out of drift wood. This should go under Structures of Impermanence but it doesn't quite fit the "structure" part of it all. As it is, it seems reasonable this was created as a simple seat for a fisherman.

The dump truck. Parked and waiting the excavator being used to dig out the new drain field in the back yard. Thought the wooded surroundings made the truck out of place until the rust is spotted then it feels rather natural.
