Love this rusty lantern with its paint flaking - it is obviously showing its age despite someone's attempt to mask it with a sunny yellow color. Interestingly, its partner was left to its natural metal sheen. Fortunately, it was still recognized for its function and not discarded.

Although I'm an advocate for change and forward movement, I do appreciate the past and re-purposing. Sometimes, it is tough to balance time and priorities, function and form, structure and relationships - but this piece stands as a reminder for me, a beacon, of sorts!
