13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Leaving My Bed

This bed had been in my family for several generations. I salvaged it after Hurricane Katrina but it was never "safe" due to damages and peeling lead paint. It had to be put to the street. Broke my heart. It was picked up in an instant by someone happy to continue its life. Bye Bye Bed.
