St. Joseph, Missouri
Beautiful shot of a building that has seen better days. Leaving a wide swath of driveway in the foreground was perfect for this shot!

Beautiful sky, beautiful ground, I like the movement suggested by the tracks of tires on the ground !

Superbe ! Bonne journée.

This is a beauty, and I like the lower angle you've taken here. The tracks and the angle "lead us" into the frame.

My new favourite: Great, Grant! That's what I call a perfect beauty. Telling stories about moving & loneliness, leaving & arrival. Damn, that one is brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Hooray, a successful car dealership. They sold them all! Nice unassuming centered composition, and I like how the tire tracks sweep toward you.

Great composition. Almost looks like a touch of blue in those tones but I know better.

That's a sad looking little structure. But at least it is in business seems like.

Great angle, love how the road seems to curl up till the house

Quaint little office! A far cry from some of the prodigious, opulent dealership offices seen nowadays in some places. Great photo though. I like the foreground tire tracks too. The deserted mood perfectly conveyed here.

The sweeping curve of the road is a wonderful contrast to the square, fully anchored building – lovely shot.

The negative shapes in the trees reflect the clouds nicely while the composition whips in and out.

I like the lower angle too...picking up the few card treads that have been through. Almost looks like an old train depot.

i like this a lot! the angle, the crumbled concrete, the shapes of the trees and the dramatic sky.

You really come across the coolest retro places. This seems far too small for auto sales, very clever composition and wonderful dark black and white tones.

a beautiful light in that sky -- and i love this long foreground with tire tracks!!!
14 Sep 2009 3:50pm
Excellent angle. I love little buildings like this.
