Rusty Photo Treasures
February 20, 2013 • Leave a Comment
When I went to visit my folks this weekend I thought I would go down to the Clark Bridge in Alton, IL and take some sunrise photos. I had even researched other locations for some sunrise and sunset photos. Instead I stumbled across something really interesting and different. I'm sure lots of people have captured the Clark Bridge in a sunrise, but the things I found probably have no photographs.
A property down the road had recently be sold and the new owner is cleaning it up. From a distance I could see an old silo, but not much more. About 2 hours before sunset I decided to take my camera down there just to see what I could find. What I found was lots of photographical treasures. Well, at least to me they are treasures. I love old and rusty things. The cars are from a time when there were no engine lights to turn on and annoy the driver only to discover the gas cap was the culprit.
Many of these images scream monochrome to me. Not sure why, but that's how I see them in their completeness. Color is nice, but the monochrome brings my mind to the past, when these things were made. No Ipads, texting or engine lights to annoy me.
