5 - Abandoned

This old truck in a neighbor's backyard has become a trash dump.  It's missing part of it's bed, but the paint shines like new!  Seemed like the perfect Abandoned theme photo.

  1. This looks a little like every farm around this area...there is always some abandoned vehicle nearby. Those tall weeds speak to the idea that this pickup had not been anywhere else recently.

  2. It looks like an antique, someone needs to rescue it. A potential theme? lol

  3. Hate to see a workhorse that has been pushed so hard that it's back appears broken, but you are right the ducco indicates that the spirit isn't broken.

  4. Neat thought to go with your image. I like what you have done here - the black and white has a timeless feel to it. Nice!

  6. Great shot, and like the others love that you converted to B&W... Really relays your message.

  7. I like the Black & white and the angle from which it was taken. So many farms and houses have abandoned trucks and cars gives the area "character".

  9. Echoing Clara and Edmund's comments about the treatment of this photo. I don't think it would have been as effective in color. Nice picture!

  10. This fits "abandoned" perfectly - it's a universal sight. The black and white is nice, too.

  11. Thanks to everyone for the compliments. The B&W was colored just a bit by a warm filter, just to give it a slightly antique-y feel. The original was in color, and somehow just didn't feel right.
