Dented and worn, pitted and cancered (rusting), the hood of a 1949 Chevrolet grain truck continues to hold its shape – lines and curves created some sixty-four years ago.
Listening to: Imagine Dragons’ ‘Radioactive.’
Quote to Inspire: “Take a moment. What was it you saw when you were moved to pick up the camera? I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear you mutter something about thinking “it looked cool.” Dig deeper. Was it a thought, a feeling, a simple moment when your eyes did a double-take at the intersection of two lines? Was it a lick of light, two blocks of color?” ― David duChemin, Vision & Voice: Refining Your Vision in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

These are gorgeous– and I love that you show us the different edits. Wishing I had a bigger monitor 🙂
Hey there, Hello ….
Thank you for your kind words and that you’re connecting with the images. A bigger monitor (me too) – for most of the summer I have been editing on a laptop computer screen (often making images darker than intended). But, I was able to edit and post from away … and that is a blessing, too. Seattle is a beautiful place and you’ll find Seattle images, here, in the April and May posts of 2012; Seattle is a place I like to get to. And, Tacoma has the LeMay Car Museum. Both combine into a photographic heaven/haven. I’ll be checking in on your photographic and narrative endeavors.
Take care. 🙂
I’ll go take a look at those posts thanks. I’ve been here most of my life but I feel like I never knew what to notice about Seattle until I left and realized that other cities are really and truly landlocked. So I’ve been re-exploring what’s out there.
There is something so captivating about rusting old cars. Always great fun to photograph. Great song!!!!
Agreed … especially those rusting relics that retain shape and colour.
Imagine Dragon’s ‘Radioactive’ seems to describe us living beyond apocalypse, that choice point where care for nature, the air, the earth and ourselves has been sidelined in terms of the priority of profit. I’ll continue to mine the song lyrics for understanding.
