REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

My Favorite Ford sans Color

For at least four years, I've photographed this old Ford truck; it's on private land near the site of a now-defunct elk farm in the mountains.  I wish I could buy the truck and store it someplace where it wouldn't be at the mercy of the elements, but that's out of the question.   My goal is to photograph it in snow, and the first snow fell yesterday.  Maybe I'll have to take a drive and make that side trip soon! Joining with The Weekend in Black and White.

I see why you like it. The shapes and textures are wonderful.

What a great shot, Evelyn, It is sad to see it exposed to all kinds of weather.

It is sad that the elements will eventually win, but you will have a history of photos that will live on.

Great old car ---wonderful details & contrast. I love taking photos of decaying things. They are much more interesting than shiny new ones.

It IS a treasure, Evelyn. I wish you could save it, too, but at least you are preserving it in photos.
