Parked


This truck has been parked in the same place in Micanopy for several years and it does not appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. It is backed up to the mansion that was used as the hospital in the "Doc Hollywood" movie starring Michael J. Fox.

I see things like that every now and then here in the northwest and it always makes me wonder WHY???? Haven't ever gotten an answer though!!

Sooner or later the plant life's going to hide it completely.

Nice work to make it look surreal!

Re your query on my post - It is a 1933 Pontiac

Hey! Sometimes you find just the right parking spot and don't want to lose it!

Randy said...

Nice find.

Linda said...

I love the effects of this one, Lowell!

Your effect suits it perfectly, perhaps more 'Back to the Future' than Doc Hollywood though!

Now it is fully integrated into the landscape.

I also wonder how things like this happen. I guess the truck wasn't running anymore...

It's about to be overtaken by mother nature never to be seen again.
No, I won't be traveling into space but many people will before very long. The Spaceport is already being used for commercial satellite launches.

It shows nature takes over and thrives when there is no human maintenance. I like what you did on the original photo.

What an amazing study! Beautiful photo work. We see old abandoned trucks around and they always make me kinda sad like an old workhorse put out to pasture.

I bet it is now inhabited by strange creatures...

A mystery to me, Lowell!

Reminds me of the mattresses I recently saw at the side of the road out in the middle of nowhere - as if the mattress owner believes no one owns the land so that makes it okay. Yeah, right!

Love coming across things like this. Though, I also wonder why? How lazy can these people be?

José Mendonça said...

It's already part of the setting. Great find.

Lowell, please fell free to use any of my photos you think might fit your project. I'll be glad if I'm useful! :-)

I didn't see the movie, but I love what you did with the photo. I like the way the plants blend in with the white flatness, and still remain very plantlike. I' still here and doung better all the time. Thanks for asking :-)
