photoblog image Better years

Better years

As in this car has seen better years. And in Better years to come. Broken lives, just like broken windows can be mended. Hope remains alive in all things, always.

Happy New year to everyone.

Located up at the far end - back 40 you could say - of the farm where field meets sage brush. Not sure of the make and model, lets just call it a 50's Dodge.

Don't see this sort of thing very often any more, unless they've been stolen and then burnt out. It amazes me that anybody can just leave a car to sit and rust, especially when they have always cost so much, maybe they intended to try and fix whatever it was that had gone wrong, but never quite got round to it.

I like this picture, it's an interesting perspective on a rusty old vehicle, I love the colours fading with the rust.
John Eagle: I love colors fading with rust as well.

Not sure of this cars exact story. But I figure the battery went dead, they blew a gasket, so to speak, or something of that nature and just got out and walked away. Did you ever see the movie “Badlands” with Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen when they were both kids circa 1973? It’s a good movie. Anyway seeing this old 50’s car rusting in the brush reminded me of that movie.

I like the colors, too, John, and the perspective. Very interesting! I like your text to go with it and do believe it's never too late to "fix up" what needs mending. Wouldn't you love to see a before and after pic of this car!
John Eagle: A before and after would be great. I will see if I can find out the model. I have the after and I can probably locate a before shot on the wweb. Let's see...

I love this image. Your presentation reminds me of the wonderful wildlife paintings [particularly birds] that are created by many artists in USA these days. Actually, your whole series on old cars and farm implements is great!
John Eagle: Thanks.
