Up on blocks

Posted by Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 10 February 2016 in Transportation and Portfolio.

I have a few shots left fro an abandoned town in South Dakota from my Badlands trip this summer.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

The tones are fitting for this one. Dilapidated building and rusted out car. Somber

Very cool Harry. I used to do a technique similar to this back in my darkroom days.

I like the way you composed this scene, as well as your black & white treatment ... pushing the contrast really conveys the sense of decay. Well done.
