REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Recording one old pickup many ways

My favorite old vehicle sits in a field in the Blue Mountains of Oregon.  I first discovered it when visiting the private elk farm across the lane, and I photographed it each time I stopped to see the bull elk.  However, the elk farm no longer exists.  I drove up the lane just to be certain, and couldn't leave without some shots of the old truck. In one of those photos, the grass in the foreground is in focus, but the old Ford isn't.    Here's the way to deal with that:   use the Lo-Fi application in a variety of ways.

Don't you just love those old abandoned trucks? They make for such interesting photos. I love the different treatments you used and the fact you showed all of them. Great work, Evelyn. :)

You know I really love when the subject is out of focus and there is vegetation in front that is in focus. Makes for a very interesting shot. Amazing processing on all these!!

The subject is fun and incredible, but what you have done with it in this series is spectacular. What a fabulous shot, incredible treatment, and a series worth framing.
