While I was out shooting pictures of the covered bridge I came upon this old Dodge delivery truck basking in the fading afternoon sunlight. It just cried out to have it's picture taken. Being an agreeable sort, I obliged.

cool shot! i wonder how that one would look in B&W? lots of times, old abandoned or rusted hulks look as good in B&W as in color... lends a sense of age and decrepitude to the whole thing. same thing with tumble-down old barns and farm equipment...

... did a double take at the title of this thread, as the other night I saw (finally) the third George Romero Zombie flick, "Day of the Dead". Hey, sounds like a great idear for a flicker... Old trucks come back to life, to feast upon the flesh of the living.

I digress... great shot! How's it feel to shoot something that isn't flying?

That's funny because I am a fan of those movies. Hence, the play on words. As for shooting something that wasn't flying it was very nice not to have to contort my neck to get a shot. As soon as I saw this truck I just new I had to get some picutres. It just has so much character. How could I not.

...brilliant cin-e-mah (if you can stomach the disgusting gore...), and social commentary. Look for Romero's new "Land of the Dead" in production now, due for release in 2005. Be interesting to see what he can do with a budget.

Wonderful picture (as always...). And this would look neat in black and white.

The black and white version should be entered in a contest. Nice work on both!

Nooner,
Don't mind at all. It's funny because this was my big dilemma. Do I post color or black and white? I wondered how long it would be before someone couldn't resist posting a B&W version. Looks really cool. Very Startling.

Nick, It had crossed my mind.:G

Nooner,

What effect did you use to get the contrast so sharp. Just removing the color leaves the picture kind of flat?
