Rural landscape: abandoned under the big sky
OLD TRUCK ON THE PRAIRIES, NEAR CARMANGAY, ALBERTA
I like the colour version (you can see it here: http://bit.ly/AlbertaOldTruck), but somehow a snowless winter scene this rustic cries out for the simplicity of black-and-white. I also like the wide-angle perspective that makes the front of the truck swell (for lack of a better term).
I’m always artistically attracted to human creations that are breaking down over time. Perhaps I’m seeking to photographically echo our condition….
Nikon D90 tripod, polarizing filter, fill-flash (to illuminate the front of the truck).
