Old woodworker tools were set up for sale in a local antiques store. They caught my eye, yes I had to do some slight arrangement to hide the sale tags, you can still see a few strings, but none the less it was opportunity for a good black and white. Remember back then B&W was all they had.
This old truck sitting by side of the road outside Knoxville, IA. has probably been photographed a hundred times. I caught it on a winter's morn and nearly got bit by the dogs of the farm as I stood in the drainage ditch to get the low angle. My only mistake was not photographing the dogs glistening teeth as it growled a foot from my face. I used Photoshop 9 to solarize the image for effect and lightened the chrome areas.
