Hand held shot of an old pump in a the yard of someone who has been collecting pumps for around 20 years but has donr nothing with them other than stack them up.

Had to use the black reverse of a reflector to eliminate some of the other rusting junk in this yard and get get the impression of a night time flash shot I was looking for.

Simple contrast and brightness adjustment to blacken down the background.

Grimey, dark and ragged, I love it. I love the negative space above it and the colors of the rust.
