I spent part of my afternoon wandering along Santa Fe Avenue in Grants, New Mexico this afternoon. I was not in a rush to return to the office and had some time to look around and make images I have passed up before.
I was making some images of a couple of abandoned buildings (I have an ongoing interest in abandoned things, what their histories are and how time has eroded them) when I spotted this old relic in the back.
My first instinct was to photograph the whole car from a couple of different angles. While I moved around the old beast making those images the patterns of the broken glass caught my eye, and I realized that I not only didn't need to see the whole car, I didn't even want to see it. Small details could tell the story.
