car door…

Whilst I detest the junk ‘we’ humans seem to leave behind everywhere that we go, it’s like a scurge on the landscape. But I do somehow have a bit of an affinity in photographing busted up and weather beaten remnants of yesty year. So for me as a photographer, there is nothing like a bit of old junk that has been weather beaten by the elements for a subject. This particular car body has a lot of weathering ahead of it, but already had developed some character for a few shots whilst it shimmered on a very brisk outback dawn.
