I loved Hugo's suggestion about a message board in the pre-information age. Cheer's Ralph.

Captured in this photo, I find the remnants from previous posted ads and announcements very eye-catching. However, if this was a board I maintained or wanted to use, my semi-OCD would say all these leftover remnants and staples would have to be removed ASAP. :-)

Wow. Like an elephant graveyard. I love the all ripped remaining pieces of experiences gone by. And the words "Against the Grain", the staples being the grain. Great shot.
