The combination of leather, worn and battered over time and metal, weathered, scraped and pitted makes a nice study on texture. This lock on a vintage travel trunk was in a sunny corner of one of the bedrooms of Bulloch Hall. The leather is cracked and scratched from years of wear. I’m sure to the owners, this would bring back memories of long voyages and adventures. Anyone can look at this and imagine packing for an extended trip on an ocean liner. Off to the glamour of European capitals or exotic lands.
Once again, looking at the details makes you appreciate things more. In this case, the wear and tear of years gone by can evoke a wistful feeling that makes us long for the past and dream of the future. I am so glad that someone cared enough to preserve this piece of history so that we can appreciate it now.
