The knacker's yard by fueast

The knacker's yard

Two long days in the board room plus jet lag and this is where they've sent me...

Its a while since I posted some grunge. Sorry for not keeping up. Very busy times and now I have very limited internet access. Hope everyone is OK.
The tones in this are incredible. Wonderful shot.

Ohhhhh... the textures are killer Alison! I love it.
February 16th, 2013  
This is fantastic! A fav!

Ewe!! Is that Boston? I have never seen that part of it! Here I am telling you it is a pretty city to photograph! =( It is a great capture but it is not how I would like to think our city looks to visitors!! Hope you got to see some pretty sights as well!
February 16th, 2013  
The textures are terrific and the way the color of the doors pops out draws my eye into the entire photo. I like the 'seedy' feel to it as well.

@marybethosullivan Don't take it personally I am a big fan of grunge! I found this in the boat yard - a fascinating place for a wander round although I'm not sure you're supposed to.
February 16th, 2013  
Was it just a coincidence that you used the word 'knackers", which fits the photo, and it is partially written on the container? I hope you get to see some better sights of Boston then this before you return home!

@skipt07 No I saw the sign and had to take the picture. I like this kind of thing! It was a happy find!
February 16th, 2013  
Great shot and awesome processing! FAV!
February 16th, 2013  
Hey, there you are! Of course you had to come across a grungy spot! Did you do a bit of HDR here? Nice. I am still bummed that I won't get to hear your accent and make fun of it - hehe...
February 16th, 2013  
@fueast Okay!! =) I feel better now!! LOL!! If you didn't get arrested, I guess it was okay! =) Wish I knew of some grungie places to send you! =) Have fun! I am going out to take photos tomorrow. It is going to snow! Can't wait! =)
February 16th, 2013  
@marybethosullivan Sadly I have a conference presentation tomorrow but then I have a couple of free days. Hurray!
February 16th, 2013  
@meisen325 MY accent? HA!
February 16th, 2013  
@fueast What can you possibly mean...
February 16th, 2013  
Fav! Symmetrical yet random...love it
February 16th, 2013  
That is great! For really cool shots, Google The John Hancock Tower, and the Custom House! The Custom House. Both have observation places to get aerial photos of the city~ Custom House you can only get up there at 2:00. Once you are up there, you can stay as long as you wish. It is a $3.00 fee. The John Hancock is really high and all closed in, and it is really cool! I know you will probably see places in Boston I have never seen! =) Enjoy! I am heading south towards the Cape Cod area. I love it there in the winter! Good luck at the conference! =)
