Abandoned Rusty Bus
One of two buses abandoned in a field on highway 80 near Selma, Alabama. The other one was yellow and green but I needed a machete to get close enough for a good shot. Interesting that everything rusted except the housing for the headlights. Seen in Explore Feb. 23, 2008, photo No. 430. First place winner in Abandoned contest, Brilliant Eye Jewels, March 2010.
