The recent auction was a total bust, as far as bargains go, so I used my time to capture some of nature’s paintings. I love the patina and the erosion that happens over time to metal and paint. Each small scene is there, waiting to be seen. Auction attendees were looking at me like I was crazy as I snapped hundreds of close-up photos while they were examining possible purchases. I think I left the auction with the best treasures – photos!

This past weekend I attended a 3 day auction at a historical ranch in Prineville, Oregon. While there were plenty of amazing items to buy, the prices were so high I wasn’t able to walk away with much. I found a few gems that I could afford, but mostly enjoyed the experience. While everyone else was paying higher-than-retail prices I was able to bust out my camera and take photos of some great rusty relics. Enjoy…
