Old car in the middle of nowhere.

Read my story on the Jornada Del Muerto trip that I posted here a while back to see this car a few years ago, and get some idea of how 'out there' this baby is.

Thank goodness too, at the price of steel today, if it wasn't nearly impossible to get here, this old shot up Cadillac would be scrap by now.

For those who asked, the laid back super cool guy is my buddy Paul. Excellent dude, was just helping me set up the lights for a self portrait, but he's WAY better looking than me, and a better model too. :)

By the way, this was a nightmare shoot - umbrellas and 30mph winds do not mix well.

Easy favorite in the challenge for me - or at least one of my top 2-3. Maybe not enough about the automobile for some, but I adore the inclusion of the laid back "rider" and the light. Voted earlier, back to comment.
