Done Gone

Uploaded: December 17, 2004


I was walking through this marina recently, when I noticed the pattern of a Christmas tree reflected in the water. I looked up and read the name on the boat nearby. It saddened me to realize that as soon as the boat departed so too would the pattern of the tree. Christmas day will soon be here… and sadly… “Done Gone” all too soon!
