urban decay

I always end up doing a double take when walking past Automania.  They're just letting this truck be taken over by rust and foliage.  They've been featured before here and here.

  1. Geez, we got our share of this subject. I like the “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” feel of this but no place in the US beats Detroit for urban decay. Worth a journey for photographers.

  2. A dress rehearsal for life after humans?

  3. This appears to be an early '50s Dodge truck.

    «Louis» would do a double-take, too!

  5. Hi Carolyn. I'm on an old webtv type device in a Paris hotel room so I can't send you any html. However I didn't make the sailboat badge another blogger named MaryT/TheTeach did. i haven't heard from her in a while but she had/has a few blogs "Sepia Scenes", Work of the Poet and I think "Ruby Tuesday" she might still have the photo.

    A bientot!

  8. I like this a lot. It reminds me (along with what JM said) that all things are ephemeral
