- entry for "Seen better days". This is taken in a Carcemetery in the south of Sweden. Short version: an old guy collects A LOT of cars, mainly for the spareparts. When he dies, the property goes to the county and after a lot of discussions in the city counsel, they decides to remove all oil, gas and other fluids from the rusty cars and then let nature slowly absorb the rest. the ground is pretty big and there must be over 50 decaying cars from different ages laying around.

Great Shot of this Old Clunker. The Rust on this beauty would have made a Killer HDR.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
