Seductive Senescence

I have always been fascinated with aging vehicles, and my original idea was to find a unique older vehicle to photograph – and to manipulate it in photoshop until I had THE unique and captivating image. As I began my search, my focus became more narrow in one sense, and more broad in another. I realized that the images contained enough interest on their own without adding and overlaying textures. Layers of paint and exposed rust show old sanding marks and the effects of time and weather. I find myself wondering about the history of each vehicle: Who owned it; how did they use it? Why so many colors of paint – and I am thankful that it is here – in this place – so I can enjoy it...
