They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, a statement I believe to be true.
Take, for example, this image from Hillsboro. The chipping paint, the doors and all those windows, the sliver of blue sky, and that vibrant flag held up by the breeze make for a beautiful sight by my estimation.
This place isn’t shiny and pretty by traditional standards but it has a story to tell. Perfection is overrated, friends. It’s the chips and the oddities that make life interesting. I’ll take patina and character any day.
I’ve never liked shiny things. I don’t like cars fresh off the assembly line. I prefer them “well-used ” I also like rusty gold. Things from the dump and not from Walmart. Lol
I like some shiny things but yeah… the old stuff is the best!
