Immobile Mobiles

Finding a piece of history along the way is always a thrill for me. A ghost town with tales of hard times and murder was no exception. Fascinated, I went into over-drive … exploring, composing and shooting. Vehicles left behind and posed among the June grass, grabbed a lot of my attention. Here are some, once mobile favorites from two sessions at this location.

This abandoned car looks like the kind gangsters and bank robbers used back in the day. As a matter of fact, that’s an abandoned bank in the background!

Looks like this truck has been stripped clean, leaving just a shell of its former self.

Two Visits

A town that once was called for two visits … one afternoon and one morning. I was drawn to a little weathered house sitting below some beautiful rolling hills, so I photographed it in changing light and from different angles. There were fences and ‘no trespassing’ signs that I did not want to violate so getting up close was not an option. What I find interesting and want to point out in this set are the skies and how they changed during my two, three hour (or so) visits. It was a fun location with other scenes to follow soon. Do you have a favorite here? … I’d love to know!
