This shot was taken in an auto graveyard, which is overgrown with weeds and brambles and scattered full of old rusted vehicles. This photo is a view of a section of the side panel of a scrapped tractor-trailer. The sides are rusted with layers of weathered paint creating vertical stripes of color and texture. The trailer is beyond any utilitarian use and has become decrepit. Although I found it to be quite beautiful, so I hope you agree that’s its latest use is a pleasant surprise.
