One-A-Day X-Ray, 9/14/12, Derby Debris Deux

As promised, here's some more super-wide action out of downtown Findlay, OH!


Taking an extended 2 mile hike downtown with all the 8x10 gear, I found myself crossing over the Main St. bridge to a side of town that was slightly less than fortunate after the 2007 floods. Many of the buildings (see yesterday's image) have been run down, and what few businesses have managed to bounce back have been hit hard by the economy. Sitting just behind a used car lot off of Main St. there are a sea of demolition derby racers. The crumpling of metal and various other materials offer up some cool textures. Trying to capture a bit of everything these cars, the super-wide was the lens of choice.
