Desert Cars

On a recent trip into the Australian Outback I saw a number of interesting cars – most of them were trashed and burnt out. I took the opportunity to photograph a few (that still looked like cars).

This first one is my favourite! It had a cool paint job that was slowly fading due to the harsh Australian sun. I edited the photo in Photoshop to enhance the ‘faded’ look.


This photo I edited with a textured layer to bring out the rusted and worn feeling that was written all over this car!

Enjoy! xx

  1. Rachel Jane, there you go again! You have such an eye for seeing the beauty in things. I was just telling my 14 year-old last night that there is art in everything, it just takes the right person to see it and bring it out. šŸ™‚

    • šŸ™‚ that is a wonderful thing to say – there is art in everything. I am toying with ideas for a new name and I have this word I like and you kind of reconfirmed how much I like it when you said it takes the right person to bring it out!
      Does your child (not sure if daughter or son) like art/photography at all?

      • Well, I’m glad I could help! šŸ™‚ And thanks for the mention in that recent post – that made me smile. I have 4 sons and they all love art, music, and photography. The 3 older ones are all amazing musicians, the youngest wants to be, lol. With the advent of these amazing digital cameras – and yes, even phone cameras – it seems like this generation coming up has the freedom to play and learn taking pics without the worry of costly film. I think it’s producing an incredible amount of art in the world, don’t you? It’s also causing overload on our laptop harddrives in our house… oh well, a small price to pay. šŸ™‚ What’s next for you???
