Fossil. A fish.

There are currently over 38,000 fossils for sale on eBay. That surprised me.

They range in price from the princely sum of 1 cent (now obsolete in Canada) to $250K.
This one has a broken bit that has been repaired, by whom or when I don’t know. It’s quite heavy.


So Merriam Webster’s dictionary says that a synonym for obsolete is fossilized. Thus is felt like the perfect way to cross this finish line on this project. Yahoo.

Well folks, that’s it! I’m done.

I started this project with the modest goal of a 30-day challenge to photograph and blog about old, odd, depleted, quirky things that were taking up space in my studio and apartment (aka clutter), and now over 365 posts (372 published posts – those “OT” [off-topic] ones) developed a new relationship to the term obsolescence. It’s been most delicious fun.

I do have a “Phase II” in mind, but for now I’m going to take a little break for a couple of weeks. I’ll probably pop back in with an “OT Karmic” update post between now and then.

Until then, So long and thanks for all the fish.
