It’s amazing the things you find in the desert. Although I must say that being out in the middle of the Escalante desert by myself after seeing the numerous bullet holes and casings was a little thought provoking.

    I would really like to know the history behind this. If only objects could speak! Bonnie and Clyde springs to mind. Riddled with bullets has never been so true! A great find and very well captured and processed.

  5. A great find and a great composition! I like the way all the pieces of the car seem to point to the wilderness in the background as if pointing out the unusual situation it finds itself in.

    I know the feeling. Sometimes we do geocache in deep woods of state or county parks in Iowa and we find trees, signs or other objects full of bullet holes. Now I make sure to check hunting seasons before we take off- it increases survival chances ;) .
    One thing to be told about old cars in the middle of nowhere- they make fantastic photographs!
