About the Image(s)

There is a place, about 20 miles from where I live, which is a mostly wooded area dedicated as a graveyard for many dozens (possibly more) of old vehicles. Many buses, trucks, vans and cars are slowly rotting away in an elegant rural setting.
I was lucky enough to visit this place, a few years ago. I have chosen this photograph because it sums up the way nature is gradually reclaiming a man made thing - and this car is there for the long term!
Nikon Coolpix A and processed in Affinity Photo 2.

Hi Robin,
Great Wabi Sabi image. You captured a good story of the passage of time and the effects of nature on the vehicle. Nice details and texture throughout. Well exposed. Old and weathered subjects have so much character. I like it. The colored image must look great too.   Posted: 07/05/2024 09:15:20

Robin, first of all - a great title for this shot. This car is certainly not going anywhere! This subject lends itself very well to mono as it seems to add to the passing of time. I expect in a few years time this shot will be impossible as the car will be completely overgrown. Good detail and texture in this shot.   Posted: 07/08/2024 03:19:47
