Is that...? Yes, I believe it is. Well... Wildlife photography meets cabin fever, perhaps? In the third photo, what I assume to be the grille looks like risers in an opera house. We could call it "The Ford Theater".I don't recognize the symbol in the 5th photo but I do like the contrast. The symbol and background don't seem connected to one another. It looks like a gravestone in grass.Oh - I've got Ansel Adams' double exposure from the bowling alley posted over at my place. It makes me laugh ;-)
I'm glad someone likes today's photos. They were garnered at tremendous discomfort with wind chill values hovering around two degrees. And there's more! An acre or two left to explore, hopefully when the weather warms up a bit...
I stroll through the beautiful images thinking how they remind me of one of my favorite photographers, Minor White...then, I'm shocked back to reality by the little bird who at once seems so out of place and at home in the series all at the same time. Nice post, glad you braved the cold so the rest of us could share in this rumination. sb
Thanks for the compliments. Someday I hope to brave warmer weather and potential sunburn...
Loved all the old car photos, Tom. The ice, snow, wet, mold, rust, etc. -- contrasted with various logos, mostly intact. Great color. Great texture.I agree the little bird was a shock. He had been a LIVE bird, not a metal carcass. He may have had less horsepower than a vehicle, but his abandonment touched me.
Ah, yes, the bird. A sorrowful sight, but fitting with, as you said, the other abandonment. There are still more cars to explore in that one lot, but it will take time and hopefully warmer days.
