Roadside Treasures

Old School Bus & Harley, Buffalo SouthtownsOld School Bus & HarleyBuffalo Southtowns While exploring new Southtowns roads on a motorcycle, I came upon this beauty of a roadside treasure. It just shows one should never stop exploring as new opportunities are all around. And as here, one often does not have to venture too far from the back yard.

I did not have my camera with me as I was riding light, carrying an empty knapsack with just a water bottle. So I stopped, grabbed a few reminders of the scene for a later visit with my phone, and continued my mind cleansing ride.

The very next day, I headed back. Weather changed quite a bit and it was overcast solid, thus I would not get the light of a low rising sun. But I banked on the gloomy diffused light working well with the decaying beauty.

I tried a few different angles starting with a head on view and then experimenting with both sides for a more angled view. In the end however, mostly due to the surroundings, I liked the initial head on perspective the best.

I already look forward to finding new gems wondering about. Let's head out and find some!

I often wonder when I see derelict items by the road or off in fields; even houses left to rot. How do these things happen? Didn't someone want or love the item/house? How could they just let it go . . . ???? Not only the heart and soul of the matter, but, how can they afford to let them die?
