If you're ever lucky enough to be invited onto an old junk-yard or anywhere where there is a heap of old and rusty machinery, you will know that there are a lot of opportunities for amazing photography. These photographs of machinery show what is possible with a great subject and a little immagination.

I like the shit out of them there pics.
This is how I see it:
Quite a few of those photos look to have been done with HDR. Some “gently” some not so gently. This time, even the garish ones look good — painterly.
I’m getting a steampunk vibe from a couple of them…you can’t go wrong with steampunk…just saying
Love this. All of it. Thanks for the post. Inspires me to seek out a junk yard or two…
Thanks for bringing back memories and the great photography. Some of HDR was a little past my taste but interesting, maybe I’ll developed new taste buds who knows.
I like them a lot well done good graphic rework too
I went to a junkyard / metal recycler and it is a great place to take shots. here is a shot, and some additional ones are at http://www.flickr.com/photos/shakeskc. Next time, I will bring a macro lens.https://farm7.static.flickr.com/6154/6203676041_06f505e0b4_z.jpg
Almost the same as my gallery, made in November 2009!
Great images! That old stuff has so much potential. New areas of inspiration.
