Thank you, Ken. I’ve heard that “rust never sleeps” line before. I wonder where it started. A while ago I learned why rusted particles pop off of rusted surfaces. Have you heard this? It’s that iron-oxide molecules are larger than iron molecules, and when the rust builds up to a certain amount, there is simply no room left of the surface for them, so some are forced off. I think that’s cool.

I first heard the expression fron an old (1979) Neil Young album titled “Rust Never Sleeps”. You’re too young to remember it, probably but Young was the first grunge artist long before Seattle bands took credit.
That’s interesting about rust buildup. I learn something everyday.

Ha ha, not too young. In fact, I’m from an era when we didn’t know as much about our rock ‘n’ roll as the kids coming up later, which, no doubt from your comment, you are one of. I’d stopped buying albums by 1979, but hadn’t stopped listening to popular music on the radio and know about Neil Young but not that he had an album called Rust Never Sleeps. I even remember when Neil Young was part of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. And that the group was Crosby, Stills, and Nash before then—but that was probably before your time. . . . Oh, my goodness. I just Googled them. They are performing tomorrow in Milwaukee and tickets are sold out. Amazing.

You had a really good time between those burned cars! Inspiring location. I love the whole series so far. See you.

Thanks, Harrie. Yes, I did have a very good time. Not something you wish for, but nice to be able to make something interesting from.

Magnifique série, et plus spécialement cette photo-là.

Merci, Orepuk. Je suis heureuse que cette photo ta plaît. (Est-ce que «ta plaît» sont les mots justes?)
