"Hog Wild Moonshine Chopper"...



This rural art is very creative, entertaining and detailed. Is this a remnant of the past or future? Is this a turn off Fury Road? Hope you enjoy.

This is part of a collection which I've shared over the past decade.
Location: rural Arkansas (protecting the location from vandals). April, 2012.

"Waterfall Clouds"...



It doesn't take much water to boost one's imagination. This photograph could appear to be two-in-one. The left side displays a waterfall with the beginnings of churning, whereas the right side displays motion that mimics clouds high above the earth.
Comments welcome.

"Fawn in Sunlight"...


At birth, white-tailed deer fawns have a spotted, reddish coat that is fairly silky. There can be several hundred spots on the coat. The spots enable to deer to blend into its natural surroundings. Fawns usually lose their spots around three-to-four months.

"Roadmaster Stories"...


There is much to be said and respected of the automobile designs of the 1950's. This is the passenger, front door of an abandoned 1951 Buick RoadMaster. To a series well known for its mass of steel, this intimate view of the door interior shows the design detail not only in aesthetics but in fabric stitching.
It is possible this particular car was used in law enforcement. There is a post mount spotlight on the drivers side and you may notice the Driver's Accident Report form in the seat. There were additional, empty forms under the seat. This car has many stories to tell.
