A little side project

We have an abandoned Ford dealership in the town where I live.  In fact, I think it closed down about a year or two after I bought my Mercury Mistake, er, Mystique there.  Man, how I grew to hate that car.  That's a post for another day.

I pass by the old place every time I head down Hwy 67 to the office in Hope, and then back again.  At one point while diving and letting my mind wander, I thought it would be fun to park my car under the old "Used Cars" area and snap a few pictures.  So, the other day, I did:

This one didn't work so well because of the shadow falling across the parking spot...


This is my favorite, especially after tweaking the coloring a bit for a rustic, antique feel:


I really wanted to park under the "GUARANTEED" section, but there is a LOT of junk under there - boards, trash, and who knows what else:


This is actually to the right of the photos above, behind what was once the new car showroom.  I thought this would make for a cool photo: 


It's hard to see, but I purposely caught the legible reflection of "BODY - SHOP" in the hood of the car.
