These two old Fords were parked on Historic 25th Street in Ogden, UT. I saw them when the light was hitting them just perfectly and instantly knew this would be a great black and white image.
I love classic cars. I also pulled out every color except red so as not to detract form my focal point.
Contrasty Side Rake
Contrast is my favorite element of photography and that's what drew my eye to this scene.
The shape of this side rake gives the image some movement and its long fingers bounce my eyes all over the photo.
The Red Dash
This is an HDR image created through 3 exposures. I felt the only way to accurately portray the depth of the red was to shoot this image in High Dynamic Range.
I realize graffiti is wrong, and I don't like to see it ever, UNLESS- it's on a train car. I'm not sure what in my brain that say that's okay, but it does. That being said, it still has to be pretty colorful and visually pleasing to look at! I waited for months for a train car to be in this place at night with an acceptable amount/color of graffiti. I took it at night to add a sense of loneliness and mystery.
I saw this white, vintage Volkswagon sitting in a pile of leaves and knew I had to photograph it. The beauty of this image is it's lack of things that date it. It could be 2, 19, or taken yesterday.
Graffiti on wheels and strapped to a track is my very favorite. I love the colors of night too.
Some things just look great in black and white, and tools, are one of them. I like the shapes and rigidity in this picture.
