Wabi/Sabi
Wabi Sabi is a Japanese concept of finding beauty in decay.  This is meaningful for me because I look for this very thing when out photographing old decrepit building, bridges and boats.  
Here then is a collection of my personal best that illustrates the concept.  Each of these images holds a special place in my heart.
