I’ve been to Marathon a lot, but this was the first time I spotted this abandoned cattle pen. It was built from heavy timbers, and clearly intended to last. Which it did: it evidently outlasted the cattle industry out here.

Apparently the clandestine-message industry is still going strong, which I guess is good to know.

  1. Back in the old days, they built things to last. Now things are done to get the job done at minimum expense.


  2. Nice light and lines, and shadow details, Melinda.
