Reconsumed by nature

My husband collects old trucks and uses them as part trucks. Often, nature has claimed them back. Covered in moss, rust, and plants that grow out of them, they tell the story that even metal, glass and plastic will be eventually claimed back by nature. Our power as humans over nature is challenged. This truck was consumed by fire. The melted head light caught my eye. I used a macro lens to capture the destruction the fire caused on the man made material.
