📷 Photocontest: Vehicle Photography - In the Eye of the Beholder

Morning Steemlings!

I love exploring the backstreets when I travel. It's exciting to find beauty in what most people would pass by as a piece of junk.

I came across this abandoned truck, exploring the streets of Ayvalik in Turkey.

I wonder about the life it's had, the people and the families it's carried from place to place. The conversations that happened within it's cab. Did it carry olives from the harvest ready for pressing, to make the quality olive oil that Ayvalik is known for?

Now it sits, abandoned in an alley, rusting in the salt air of the Aegean Sea. Old and decrepit in stark contrast to the golden beaches and sparkling waters stretching along the nearby tourist riddled shoreline. It sits ignored, forgotten even, until one lone explorer sees the hidden beauty to share with the world.
