It Was a Photo Sunday

At the crossing, Bedford, IN

Every now and then it is fun to go out and shoot on a Sunday.  I set out with my photo buddy and friend Debra and set a target of Spring Mill State park.  Never one to take the direct route I decided we would travel through some small Indiana towns.  We visited  a few towns but in Bedford, IN we made a right turn and just started driving and came into the industrial area of the town.  Kind of creep and as I post more images you’ll see why.  I could do a whole photo story on this town.  We started out photographing rusty gas tanks, then rotting doors, then we stumbled upon this gigantic junkyard and it looked very apocalyptic.  There were old cards, machines, and thousand of old military howitzer rounds.  Then we found giant abandoned factories and some very different neighborhoods.  In one neighborhood as we crossed the tracks we see this pickup just sitting in the grass, an old swing set and a sign next to the railroad tracks.  Behind us was a house with kids toys all over that sat only six feet from the tracks.  I shot an image above with the signs, truck and swing and then decided to enhance it a bit to give more the feel for what I was seeing there.  I’ll be working on more images this week.

One thought on “It Was a Photo Sunday

  1. I find this photograph to be very interesting and depressing too. Your photograph definitely tells a story, a sad one but still a story that I am intrigued to learn more about. Can’t wait to see more photos!
