Doing more with pictures in 2012…

37 – Car Parts


We tooled around this cool antique mining exhibit the other day.  I haven’t been since I was a kid and hubby had never been…it hasn’t changed much.  The owner is basically a hoarder with a gimmick, and charges admission to see his junk.  Genius?  I think so!  When I see a busted old vehicle like this with paint in 100 colors, I can’t help but do that cartoony HDR effect to it, because it looks bad-ass.

If you get the chance, go check this place out.  It’s called the Gold King Mine & Ghost Town and it’s right outside of Jerome, AZ.  Stop & talk to Don when you go.  He has led an amazing life and tells the best stories; he’s also extremely knowledgeable.  Plus, it’s next to dirt cheap to get in!

  2. You’ve turned that truck into something worth looking at.

    Love the grungy truck . . . your processing makes it into a work of art.

  4. The background building adds to the “hopelessness” of the situation. Great shot!
