if things could talk

As I recently discovered a story about a barge ship laden with scrap car hulks [at the telegraph.co.uk], I remembered the song by Ry Cooder “If things could talk” – and I remembered all the old vehicles sent by various photographers to my group BLOG IT. Enjoy the four pictures below, click on the images to enter the flickr galleries of the different artists!

  9. these a great photo’s, Frizz. The green with the orange / red rust is so beautiful. I worked with copper and it oxidizes like that.
