Entry Description

"Winning the Fight". It was on the corner of a crossroad in the west Texas desert. It was an old, worn, one room building in the middle of "oilfield" country. Why was it there? What was it used for? Why was it one room? Maybe it was an office building, but to me it means more. It stands against the test of time, braves elements, and was abandoned and left to rot. Yet there it stood, strong, unwilling to give up the good fight. The picture says that we do not give up, but stand, no matter how undersized.
