#14212 Branch Office

This old junker has been parked a very long time and it appears to be firmly rooted, so to speak. There is some confusion as to what it is...a Dodge, a Pontiac, a 1934...who knows for certain, but there is no doubt where it is, and that is a corner of an old junkyard in Georgia, way off the beaten path. Nowadays it is a deluxe penthouse for uper-crust squirrels who enjoy a radio, stick shift, and plush seats.<br />

The image was originally in color, but a conversion to black and white and a darkening of the sky let the branches stand out and more character bubble up to the surface. Using a wide angle lens added to the strangeness, and just a tad of hand tinting the rust back onto the car helped it stand out from the jungle. I'm glad to have captured this nugget from backwoods Americana...
