REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Vintage Photo Art


"Vintage" is the theme on Photo Art Friday this week.  (I never seem to know the starting time for the memes I visit weekly!)   For years, I've photographed this old Ford  truck when visiting an elk farm in the mountains.  Unfortunately, the elk farm is now out of business, so I won't be visiting Old  Red  very often...if at all.    I first applied three RadLab stylets to this image and then finished with two layers of PDPA Old Master Dust.
(My initial post said the truck was a Chevy...which it isn't!)

What a great shot, and I love this old truck. Glad you got some photos of it before you quit going!

This is well done. Looks like an oil painting.
An elk farm sounds interesting...

Bonnie said...

Wonderful! Looks like it has been there so long it is covered in moss and mold. Great editing.

Evelyn this is lovely. You've truly done this old Red Chevy justice with your piece. So sad that the Elk farm closed.

What a gem! Even in its rusty state. Your processing adds to the vintage charm.
