Kansas City, Missouri
Fine light, and sky. Number two looks like a circus wagon....

Excellent image Grant (as always) and I love it because it makes me feel expectant; I am anticipating something to happen here. Almost a scene from a sci-fi even. The lighting is surreal under the trailers, the blandness of the walls looks to me as if they are hiding something; an illusion? wonderfully composed, exposed and presented. well done!

@Matt Sutton: thanks very much matt. (i can tell you i hung around there for some time waiting for the light to work out how i wanted - and nothing happened, couldn't have been deader...)
This is really nice, particularly because of the evenness of the tones across the plane, and the wonderful beautiful flat planes.

It looks abandoned. Your composition is perfect. Your vantage point has the trailers showing nicely against that old warehouse. Love it in greyscale.

@sherri: thanks sherri. i recently got a car that i can climb on when i want to get some height. this was the first time i took advantage of that possibility.
great tones and the comp is perfect, espicially the second trailor with the vertical lines.

@alex centrella: thanks alex
Love the simple juxtaposition of the boxy trailers and boxy building -- the trailers coming into the frame at a slightly off-kilter angle

there is something quite surreal about massive trailers such as these -- i almost expect them to come to life, like giant brontosauruses -- maybe it is the shape or the amazing smoothness of the sides -- maybe it is the tiny front legs that i expect to turn into sharp claws, should the whole thing rear back on its haunches... who knows -- but i think Steven King could create an entirely horrific script set amongst a a dim graveyard of 18 wheeler trailer corpses! ;) marvelous composition here -- you are certainly in true form: wide flat spaces of slightly anxious locales, dusty tracks of times or lives gone by..., minimal detail -- almost to a surreal extent and a coldly beautiful and hyper serene sky. just magical and captivating!

@dj.tigersprout: i agree. i know nothing about trucks, but i find myself photographing these trailers, especially, quite a bit. i like the way they catch light, but they can also have a menacing feel.
Even though the frame is full, there is an eerie emptiness here....I love that!

What Kurt said about the angles. For me this is one of those shots that impresses with just the angles - those could be anything, trucks or loaves of bread... :)

@Stovepipe: i appreciate that thought. it's how i like to think about the pictures that i take - that they could be anything. i hope that makes sense - i don't want to turn them into something abstract, but it's more about interesting light, lines, and shapes than anything else.
Very simple and surreal like dj says. Bunch of trailers, abandoned, no sign of people, and a few puffy clouds... Nice shot!

@Howard F.: :-) thanks howard, i appreciate it
You have a very good eye and the tones are perfect here.

@Lucca: thank you lucca
You've nicely elevated a mundane scene. I bet this might also be an interesting shot at night.

@Twelvebit: thanks. you're probably right about the night shot, although i might not want to go alone at night.
Nice composition. I like the contrast between the fluffy sky and the hard concrete .
