Six images

The abandoned farm around the corner. There’s a tear-down in progress, though I’ve never seen anyone working at the site.

I think these last two ladder shots have a little Wyeth vibe going for them.

Because nothing says “Happy Holidays!” like a gallery of vintage hubcaps!

Love, love, love this color!

Seriously…this is creating a potential hazard for me.  I am scanning cars as I drive, noticing little details that I would have completely glossed over before I started on this series. Is it possible that I am going to be some kind of….what would you call it?  Not a gearhead. I just want to…look.

Oh…and take photos of what I am seeing.

And show them to people so that they can have car crushes, too.

Maybe what that makes me is…hmmm…a photographer?

More nameplates/insignias/badges from the classic car junk yard.

I really like the first shot, in no small part because of the way the sunlight casts shadows of the leaves and softens the whole picture.

If I was all about documenting, then I suppose I would be hauling around spots or fretting about the uneven quality of the sunlight as it filters through the pines and hits the cars. Instead, I am delighted with how that sunlight has made itself right at home in the pictures. (Click to view these as a gallery.)

And, speaking of name-dropping, I am delighted to tell you that “With Your Chrome Heart Shining” was juried into the 2016 Midwest Seasons exhibit, opening in January. (I really love this picture.)

Back to the junkyard for a sampling of the Fords.
