Going, going, gone.....

By johnriley1uk  
I have been photographing this decaying rail carriage for years, and it has always been great when needing to demonstrate decay, texture and detail. Then just recntly I looked at the same scene and it was gone. The point is make the most of anything that is around us, because things disappear very quickly, be it a carriage or a building, or sometimes even a road, and once gone it cannot be photographed again.

Great details in your image, John, with plenty to look at. It does not look as if it has long to go!!
