Im glad my picture was able to bring back some good memories, thats a big part of what photography is about.

I did have a shot as you suggested but I felt showing that these tags were part of a building rather than just an array would have proven better. But I will post the cropped shot later if you are interested in comparing the two. Thanks again for the comments.

Im really not sure what his intentions were besides a small passion for expired tags. Most of the dates seem to be from the 70's and 80's but I found some on the back that were from the 50's. This building is located on an old abandon farm and happened to find it a year ago on a location scouting trip. It was the first place that popped into my mind when this challenge came about.
