Photographer's Note

This old car beckoned to me while on a photo trek with a friend. It was a frosty morning, very cold, and we were having fun with the hoar frost that was all over everything.

There are old, rusty, abandoned cars like this all over the U.S. They are in fields like this one, in people's sheds, outside people's sheds (which may have been the wrong place for storage of a vehicle), and placed on river banks, presumably for erosion control. Now they molder and fade away: very large litter. On the other hand, when one drives by an old car like this (or truck, as it were), there are feelings of nostalgia for the glory days of the car and its period.
