Don't forget: This Caption This photo continues our weekly Thematic Photographic theme, poignant. Please go here after submitting your caption to see what the whole TP deal is all about. You'll be intrigued.There's a quiet dignity in the way some objects of everyday life are left to decay where most of us will never find them. As if they deserve a little peace after years of being rung through the wringer.
I came across this rusting trailer in back of a combined gas station/fireworks shop in a tiny little town that's become an oddly traditional stop for us on on our way home from Florida (please see here and here for earlier entries from this place.) Tucked in the mountains near the Kentucky border, it's the kind of place that the world seems to have left behind. This scene, punctuated by complete silence that seemed as if it would never be broken, struck me as a poignant comment on what happens to the things we no longer need.
