Colorful rust + classic car … I couldn’t get a good shot of the whole car as most of it was in some serious shadows and parked against an uninteresting building. I love the colors and patterns here though.
This looks like a bedskirt to me.
I made another visit to my favorite spot in Norfolk where the rusting retired channel markers live. They make such pretty backgrounds.
This is where I discovered the channel markers graveyard and shot my two posts, Retired Channel Markers and Channel Markers Revisited. I wanted to share with our viewers the kinds of places I go to find really interesting shots. One of my favorite places to explore is near the train tracks in any city or small town. I have never been disappointed by the photographic treasures that live near the tracks! When I decided to venture into this neighborhood, I had no idea that these channel markers were stored here. Now I want to find out their history! Stay tuned! I shot this through the windshield by the way so it’s not the greatest quality. I didn’t want to startle the man heading my way by jumping out and taking a picture. And yes I could probably jazz it up with some post processing but other images are already waiting for me there!
A softer, more subtle version this time. And in my college sorority colors, pink and green – thanks Mother Nature!
Some of you have already seen this on wabisabiimages.wordpress.com but I love this so much I wanted to share it here too. I stumbled upon this while exploring an industrial park in Norfolk, Virginia last week. It looked like a cemetery for old channel markers that are now resting among the trees. They make for rather elegant artwork and some of my favorite images I have ever shot.
