I think I see Jesus in the rust! No, wait...it's Matthew McConaughey. Sorry, they both have ripped abs, it gets confusing.

Very interesting Lo-Wi (you thought I had forgotten your new nickname, didn't you?). Have you ever read the article about the Chinese Zombie Ships off the coast of West Africa???

If not, read up...

Low down on the side of a rusted out panel truck? It's pretty interesting... Looks kinda like a satellite shot.

Great vision...the texture of this really does evoke underwater objects and movement.

Thanks for the love, all y'all!

This lovely bit was the side of an old rusty Chevrolet in a junk yard in North Carolina. It's a stretch, I know --but since it's within a 30 minute drive of where Blackbeard the pirate used to call home, I went for it.

Trev, celeb air-kisses from Lo-Wi, the Zombie Ships article was amazing, poignant, and full of rust and barnacles. Appreciate the find and you sharing!

ThomP -- TexMex do make the day brighter, and salsa is eggxellent on eggs...

Lou said...

I get it... This is a photo of the car where Jimmy Hoffa is located. The car is located 'under the sea.'

Love the details of the paint chipping. Great job!
