If there is one thing I find super cool is visiting junkyards, especially if they have old automobiles. Most times I wish I could have a bunch of mechanic friends like I did growing up so I could tell them how I want an old car to be restored and they would happily do so. Recently, I visited a junkyard and since @steemusa is having this take some photos of anything in 'merica contest I figured I'd play along. If you are interested in joining, the original post is here.
The automobiles that caught my attention this time were old trucks, I have some happy fantasies of building my own Mad Max truck like Furiosa. Well, my mind went crazy with creative ideas on how I would rebuild these beauties. Check it out ...
The rust, dirt, and possibility that I might lose my life by stepping into some dark pit of hell in this junkyard was quite exciting. I'm not exaggerating. There were plenty of things that were questionable, including pits and holes in the ground that were boarded up. Aside from that I did sneak into the junkyard simply because the old automobiles I found reminded me of an era gone by in 'Ole America.
What amazed me the most was finding that most of the pieces were solid steel and very well made. The stories this tow truck could tell, I just felt like I wanted to take care of it and restore it back to its' original beauty -- with some grit left just for fun.
The whole steampunk metal, steel, and chains really got me dreaming ... I mean who doesn't love this type of art these days. I know I'm a huge fan and love anything with a mix of metal, cloth, rubber -- pretty much anything to do with industrial artistry.
This window shot I took looked pretty cool, so I just kept taking photos from all angles to try to snap the feeling I had while looking inside. It almost felt as if I was trespassing on a grave of memories, yet also a welcome into the past.
As I continued to walking inside this treasure trove, I found my most favorite of all trucks and in my favorite color to boot. The International ...
These trucks were in a lot located in the four corners of the United States of America, a location where Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico meet. If you love trucks too then I hope you enjoyed reminiscing over some dear ole lovelies too. They certainly were an inspiration and joy to photograph. As a beginner in photography it's always a good idea to practice and these were my models.
