Like being a kid in a candy store. (Click on images to enlarge.)
You have the most beautiful scrap yards I have ever seen. Single exposures and mashups alike, this is a great series, Alan!

Thanks so much Mic. I think any accomplished photographer would have a blast in these places — as long as he or she didn’t mind getting mud all over their boots or shoes :)
I can see by your photos that should be true. But it’s not the mud on my boots so much as the pieces of sharp metal that seem to protrude everywhere along the muddy road in and out 😳 I’m always concerned about ruining a tire or two on my truck…😬
The artbeast has been released. :-) What a treasure this place is – great work. The colors and textures are terrific.
Thanks Lynn. Glad you enjoyed them.
Ag, what do you drink/smoke when you go on such photoshoots? I want that ! Stunning pictures. Love them all.
LOL. Nice to hear from you again singhmv. Maybe I take these pictures to make up for not drinking or smoking :)
I’m still running behind on my e-mail, as you might see from the date of this comment—sincere even if late. I enjoy your multiplying of the scrap-yard beauties. You take the raw material and raise it to the tenth power. The time and thought you put into your art overwhelms me.
Thanks Linda for such a generous comment.
Whereas I used to think the image from the camera was the final product, now I often see it as just one component of a larger mix. For me, the mashups have become a very satisfying, though hardly labor saving, addition to my creative toolbox, and a way of staying fresh.
I’ve been thinking for years that I would like to make composites, but I have yet to have a composite idea! Maybe I’m just too enamored with what I see in the viewfinder and afraid I cannot do anything better. Keep doing what you are doing. If I watch long enough, maybe I’ll learn something.
