17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Lost story

At the bend of a river a part of a forgotten story resurfaces. A sudden change had taken place or was it only a word in the page of a life ? Anyway, since that day this piece of history continued to survive along the water, day after day until there is nothing left of this oxidized scrap. The change can be brutal or slow but it is constant, it is omnipresent and is in fact only the very definition of life as small as it is.
