Good as Old © William Britten use with permission only

Philosophical Friday here again, and Friday the 13th no less. These pictures of the marvelous old pickup truck resting in glorious decay illustrate the idea that beauty and ugliness do not lie at opposite ends of a spectrum. Rather, there seems to be a circular relationship, where if you start out at beautiful and head over towards ugly, you will eventually find yourself back at beautiful. It’s like Wow! That’s so bad it’s good!

We ran into this idea before, over at the Palmer House in Cataloochee Valley in the Great Smoky Mountains.

When you’re done pondering these heavy concepts please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photography at the William Britten Gallery in Gatlinburg, TN.
