Bumper

Photograph info: I guess the ol' Chevy has been in this spot for awhile! Feel free to hazard a guess.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens at 70mm, f/5, 1/250s, ISO 400. Basic curves adjustment.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!

Said the Bumper to the Tree: "I'm so into you!"

OMG, Kathleen! You have documented a whole new branch of evolution. Just goes to show that when the elements are present and the conditions are right.... This could lead to greener vehicles, or a lot tougher plywood. It may take a few hundred million years, but the important thing is that the process has engaged. (Suggested alternate title, "Old Friends.")

Beautiful shoot, as always... and a nice focus on this orange old truck.
Thank you Kathleen. : )

I would have titled it "Tree Hugger"

Tractor, trailer and other abandoned stuff.
Parked out of the way, looking kind of rough.
Now firmly anchored to a tree,
Quite an interesting sight to see.

I'm guessing about 40 years.

Been offline and busy for a bit and realized that I've missed out on your photos for too long. I need to catch up.
This is such an Americana shot - love the composition and color.
