Gorgeous old rusted hinge and the wind and rain-beaten wooden surface is beautiful! Well captured Sandi! I wish you all the best for the new year!

I love this one, Sandi....so simple, so elegant.....how long has this piece of metal withstood time and the elements to do a simple job...Time has made the wood and metal even more beautiful.....I hope I can think that when looking in the mirror....treasure the hands of time!.....vf

Sandi Mikuse replied:

Oh so true, Karen. Many people work overtime trying to erase the signs of time in their faces. Personally I think we have earned every line and wrinkle and they are testaments to our ability to survive. Thank you for such a thoughtful comment!

Is it not odd, Sandi, how much can be said - or imaginate - in a seemingly simple object? Your superbly colored and balanced composition is proof of that. I can almost hear the creaking of the old door opening when an old crusty farmer opens the door look for his lost wife... :-)
