I like the patterns of scratches and rust on this old car door. Based on the scrape, it seems surprising that the door handle is not damaged.

Always a sad pride in discoveries like this . . we wonder about what might have been - or never was.

The handle is in good shape. I wonder if it was damaged and replaced following the scape. A fine, detailed image.
