The power of black and white !!
Beautiful shot , Allan !
Thank you, Uthamz. B/W has tremendous visual story telling and emotion conveying power.
I like how the grass is still growing around the abandoned truck. I wonder how the truck got there.
I would imagine by a dirt road connecting to the nearest highway. If there ever was one, it’s certainly long gon now. There’s no trace of it, and the edge of the highway is a steep drop into a marshy natural drainage ditch.
Whomever put this beat up old truck out there really meant to get rid of it.
Is it an abandoned car that nature will take care of?
In Sweden, there are some car cemeteries where cars have been submitted to their fate for years. Now it has become popular to go there and photograph them. Unfortunately I do not drive so it’s not likely that I can take your own pictures. Pity. But here’s a link if you want to see some pictures as a blog friend did.
I would have loved to shoot there!
Yeah Allan. You need to post here from time to time. Geez. :D
This sure is abandoned. What a find! An illustrated adventure indeed :)
I don’t see many old vehicles abandonned like this any more given the increasing environmental standards and the scrap metals market. There’s money to be made by taking your rusty old Ford to the scrap yard yourself and getting whatever you can for it, and rural locations are left vertually unscathed.
which makes this quite a rarity :)
Beautiful black and white! You sure it’s abandoned? Just because the weeds have grown up around it…?
Oh yes, this one has definitely been put out to pasture; pardon the pun.
Yes, it was about time! I’ve been checking back here regularly to look out for new posts, but it’s been (too) quiet lately! Abandoned vehivles like this, was a treasure when I was a kid. I remember we used to play in them and had lots of fun.
Me too! Now when I see a derelict old vehicle, I’m taken right back to those days.
A beautiful and at the same time sad picture of abandonment. The black and white processing adds to the feeling of the subject. Well done, Allan.
Thank you, Otto.
I find myself fascinated by dichotomy; recognizing it almost everywhere I go, and then trying to make art out of those circumstances.
i bet it was a great truck in its prime…great photograph!
When first purchased, and for the first 5 – 10 years, it was probably someone’s pride and joy.
A handsome shot Allan and as abandoned as it is it appears to be simply idling there in the sunshine.
Thank you, Patti.
I hope all is well with you. I miss your posts!
All is well, Antonia, than you so much. Kim and I have been extremely busy lately.
Today, I will be drafting new posts for Hammer Home.
I’ll also be working on upcoming posts for this blog but some will be delayed as I’m desperately trying to find time to do more drawing and painting. This blog has become saturated with so much of my photography that I’m finding that people are forgetting that I’m an illustrator. I really have to do something about that.
Good to hear that all is well with you. Looking forward to the renewal of your blog. It is inspiring. Photography is a relative quick art if compared with drawing and painting. Drawing and painting is more meditative. A low art. Today I was at the Museum and saw both photography and paintings. Photo by Hans Gedda and paintings of different artists who were inspired by Caravaggio. It’s really two different-undergraduate level. Wondered how long it took to paint the paintings. Days? Weeks? maybe years? Incredibly beautiful and vivid.
