Rusty pickup

I've passed this lot with a bunch of rusty vehicles and a large "WE BUY OLD CARS" sign several times. I always wanted to stop and shoot, but never followed up. Someone at my camera club arranged a group shoot there, early one Saturday morning, so I jumped at the opportunity.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/400 second F/5.0 ISO 400 33 mm (35mm equiv.)

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

What a sad looking beauty !!! I like the framing... it shows the age of the car beautifully !

Strange how we feel the old days lingering on in the rust there . .

This is a fine example of the vehicles available. It was rewarding to visit this place with the group. An excellent image.

That is a terrific shot. The lines of old trucks are so much nicer that the ones build now.
