Just a Junk Yard Dog

Wheels within Wheels by J. Binford-Bell

Our glorious fall is turning nasty. And the aspens are about done with all the spectacular gold. Thoughts of winterizing house and car take precedent and so I found myself at the local mechanic's garage waiting for my rear brake job. I always bring my camera because he has a wonderful parter yard. The above I am told is a part from a clutch but it looks rather like a spaceship. The one in Stephen King's Tommy Knockers comes to mind.

Junkyard Clown by J. Binford-Bell
This ATV waiting for repair had the look of a horror flick clown. And I could not resist doing a post processing acid trip to heighten the effect.

Fender abstract by J. Binford-Bell

I forgot about the cold wind as I moved around behind my camera searching out details to record. I have done other parts of the old truck above before. I love the abstract painting qualities of focusing in on broken out tail lights, etc.

Junkyard Dog

And of course the junkyard dog. Shows you just how laid back our community is. There is even a junkyard cat that was hiding out on this particular day.


  1. An interesting place. I really like the Fender abstract.

  2. I love it. The culture seems so much more lively thanks to the simplicity of the community. The junk yard dog ain't even that scary! Ha.
