I find myself in a lot of vacant lots filled with old trucks. Naturally, when faced with this many ancient vehicles, I want to photograph them. The problem is that there aren’t that many different and interesting ways to capture cars on film.
Not wishing to go for the same old same, I thought a bit of foreground work might be a fine idea. I like how the background (obviously a truck) defines the foreground (not so obviously a truck next to a dark something that turns out is a truck). Maybe without the background, the foreground wouldn’t be so obvious.
Sure, I could have just shot the truck in the foreground head on, but in the end, I wasn’t trying to take a picture of a truck. I wanted to capture what it was like to be in a vacant lot full of trucks.
