Day 342 - The stories of poles
I debated trimming the photo to take away the strip of background on the right, including the dude in the hat, but then I realised it added something: a slice of the context in which the pole lives.
I can't imagine how many years and how many posters it has taken for this poor wooden pole to become so impregnated by staples that it is actually turning rust-coloured. And I find it amazing that the pole has lasted through all those rain storms and snow storms and hot sunny days to get into this condition.
No, it's not a great photo from a technical standpoint. But it is interesting. And it tells a story.
