Old Fords And Farms by kkart Old Fords And Farms by kkart
I am just going to copy and paste my description below from RedBubble when I first processed it and uploaded it there a month ago, so bare with me.

I am completely over the moon with how this shot turned out, so excited that I just finished processing this and had to upload this at this very second. I was shocked I got it to align inside Photomatix as the wind was just insane…I guess fast shutters can come in handy. Captured at the Pawnee National Grasslands in Colorado, this whole place caught my eye. I was originally shooting the old abandoned farm house from the front when my shooting buddy John ( ~Glitch-Chaos ) walked behind it to shoot (I didn’t want to, the wind was just to much along with the blowing sand/dirt…you all should have seen my cameras sensor! lol ) when John came walking back down and showed me this 1956 Ford and I was basically freaking out. You just don’t see many 50s cars sitting around anymore in this kind of shape. I HAD to get it, considering how much of a love affair I have with old iron anyhow. The light was wonderful, really golden and saturated…so away I went, shooting around 60 shots of this scene…different compositions and orientations.

I hope you all like it as much as I do!
John

My first thought before reading the description was "I know that place! My sister used to live there!" Obviously since since she lives in western SD, she didn't. But it was very reminiscent of the house her and her husband rented and lived in when they first got married. Right down to the old cars and farm (excuse me, RANCH) machinery. Really is a beautiful, although poignant, image of what life's like out on the prairie. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Nice shot John,
Would have loved to have been there as well. Love all those old derelict cars and rustic buildings. Feel sorry for your camera sensor...there would have been a few dust specks on it by the time you finished.
Cheers, Grace.

May I add that it is ridiculously like a place in a game? Westfall in World of warcraft? It's the same! Exactly the same!! It's insane! xD
