    Nice waterfall Peter. I like the wet pile of sticks especially, meeting with the waterfall at the thirds.

    Thanks, Bryan.

    Trying to be thoughtful and not political here, consider the tradeoff's. In America we have to have a business model where a capitalist can make a profit. When old things become more expensive and less productive we sweep them aside. It's all about the money. As problematic as that seems at first thought it has produced more wealth and more comfort than any competing system you can find. I love taking my warm shower at night and sleeping in my comfortable bed. But it's at the cost of charming older things with style that new things no longer possess. We can't help but be romantic about the beauty of the lost. My house is a junk collection of old things I've dragged home to preserve.

    Here where I live, it's more that the owners passed away and either no heirs or the heirs don't want to pursue the lifestyle their parents led. There are many properties abandoned for other reasons like lack of employment, no one buys the home so it just gets abandoned. Many industries can't compete with a "global economy" so they are left to crumble. Sad narrative.

    Second try shooting the Confederate Powder Works in Augusta, GA, this time in the evening just after a storm cleared. I was hoping for a rainbow but no such luck. The light was good though and the clouds interesting.
