Every day, as we remain focused on business and meeting our deadlines, our travels take us past some relics of days gone by that are slowly eroding into oblivion.
And although our pressing schedules exert immutable forces to keep us moving, it is possible to authoritatively combat the dictates of time and pause for just a moment to preserve a vestige of the past.
There are many times that I have done so just in the nick of time. The peeling Coke sign depicted here has been painted over. I have photographs on many old buildings that have since been demolished either by accident, forces of nature, or by design.
History disappears every day. How many times have we asked ourselves: “I wish I would have taken a picture of it before it was gone?”
For me, that no longer happens very often!
