Pineapple Pretzel Salad

Pineapple Pretzel Salad: the perfect combination of salty and sweet. The sugar coated pretzels put this salad over the top.

I like this because it displays the essence of isolation through non-human elements. The sky above is dark and deary; The sands are clean and well uniformed with the lines stretching from foreground to back. The ship in the center is the obvious focus point. It's decaying due to the amount of rust upon the hull and gives a sense that the boat has spent a lot of time out of the water.

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, The lone and level sands stretch far away".

This is a ghost town in Namibia called Kolmanskop. The town was abandoned and now the sand has taken over some of the buildings. I loved the colors in this photo.
