When viewed in person, this old delivery van was completely covered in heavy, dark rust. I isolated the front left and right fenders, applied a generous dose of rust elixir in PP work, and look what happened. I'm continually amazed at the colors old rusted surfaces can be induced to divulge.

I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Nice! I like both of them. From a composition perspective I favor 1 only slightly.

    Thanks, John. Where in the heck have you been hiding? I know that strange times are prevalent now but your photo work on several fronts is something that I miss and I know others miss as well. I hope you're doing well....stay safe.

    Woodstock worthy, Tom!

    Love the colors, patterns and detail. Very good work!

    Thanks, Al. I trust you're staying as safe as you can. One of my friends had both shots and the booster several months ago. He's now in the hospital in the grips of that crap. Be careful.

    Tom....

    Many thanks!

    All is well here as I hope with you and yours.

    Safe and socially distant, keeping activities to the necessities and just being smart. Not the hermit I had become in 2020 but, also not planning any trips to FL for spring break either.

    Stay safe, keep well!
