It has become a habit of mine to look for metal on the streets. Once you start looking, you find all kinds of metal pieces, more or less broken and rusty, and certainly very wasted and lost.
I pick up some of them, bring them home and keep them like treasures. I occasionally snap a few shots to share on Instagram. Here below are a few photos I shared in 2017.
While putting them together, summarising another street combing year, I realised I can also use them to start off the new year. A reminder to keep my eyes open for anything around (or inside) me that is broken, has gone rusty or feels wasted and lost. Is it really lost for good, or is some of it just waiting to come back into the spotlight again?
I wanted to share these thoughts with you. We all need to let go of things, and to move on. Still, don’t give up hope on the rusty sides of life. Perhaps things are just biding their time, until the right moment comes again?
