Excellent title for this rusting heap photographed from an excellent POV.

@Michael Skorulski: My thanks, Michael.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Agree with Michael - the PoV brings it (back) to life !

@Ronnie 2¢: I was going for that "I am about to be run over" feel... thanks, Ronnie.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

it had better days ;-) excellent angle and framing, and good rendering of textures and colors !

@Anna Cherer: Hard to believe these old relics were once brand new gleaming possessions for proud owners. They have a lot of character, though. Thanks, Anna.

The beauty of decay captured perfectly here

@grouser: Thank you. There *is* a strange allure to certain types of decay.

Gérard Flayol from Allauch, France

Beautiful mix of colors on this old truck, not so old as that, because it always has hair

21 Mar 2018 9:56am

@Gérard Flayol: Yes, I have seen bald trucks before, and it isn't pretty.

I like the colors and textures.
It also looks like a face.

@Ehsan Hemmati: Now that you keen eyed Am3-ers have mentioned a face, I am seeing it also. My thanks!

Franz from Baden, Austria

Terrific 'portrait' of this 'oldtimer', Rick! The rusty texture and hues are so appealing ... and the branch growing from the 'carcass' adds extra charm!

@Franz: Thanks a lot, franz. I've been vicariously enjoying your travel images, immensely so.
