Last week I went to a car place that sells old cars. Really old cars. Most of them weren’t moving and or drivable anymore. Great for a photographer to walk around. All the little rusty details were so much fun to photograph. And in an attempt to make it a little more country-ish looking I picked some dandelions and such from the tall grass that was growing around the pick up trucks. Like a little field bouquet.
Such a cool looking car still, even it is rusted and parked in a field waiting for its new owner.
I had put the flowers next to a mirror of an old Studebaker pick up truck to make a picture and then laid them down to get a bit of a contrast picture of the red worn out rusty paint textures and the fresh picked flowers. Loved the red and yellow together like that.
So am making a few pictures whenI see a white flower moving downwards on the hood. Now wait a minute, that’s not a flower. I had to double check this one, because I had never seen anything like it. So bright white…
That’s not a flower, that’s a spider. A very, very white spider. Later a friend told me that it was a white crab spider. It was funny because that was what I thought of when I saw it. It walked exactly like a crab. With his front legs bend. Have to give him credit for hiding in these white flowers. Pretty neat hide-out, because he was very hard to spot in those. Thinks he decided he’d rather live in the red rusty Studebaker than in the bouquet. :-)
I continue to be interested in new things that seem old and old things that seem new.
