“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”

—Ernest Hemingway

My photograph, Broken, is from a 1980 driving trip I made across the United States, and appears here thanks to a prompt from the Daily Post photo challenge, giving me a chance to pair one of my favorite lines from literature with one of my favorite scenes from long ago. I’m frequently shooting things from the past.You’ll find more in my Time Travels, HERE.
