Count the Layers

Beautiful Rusty Iridescence

Captured upon the skin of the old red caboose at Haymarket, Virginia, these beauteous iridescences can be created only by the undisturbed oxidation of iron underneath of the painter’s finished handiwork. How many coats of vermilion have been flaked away thusly by such acts of nature during the lifetime of the old caboose? It is a constant struggle between man, the elements and time.

Count the layers,
Count the years,
Count the struggles,
Count the tears.
Say goodbye when counting ends;
Say goodbye.
