Just outside the suburban areas of San Jose you’ll find lots of farmland that provides several possibilities for shooting rustic images. One such opportunity, just at daybreak was a shack along the side of the road filled with all kinds of junk. There was some gang tagging on the walls and weeds growing up between all the clutter. All the windows were broken out and water damage was very apparent.
As I’ve mentioned before, I love images of gritty scenes. I’ve always been a fan abandoned places. This image, with the nasty mattress, cracked walls and trash contrasted with the soft, warm morning light, hills and trees has it all. I really like this one. It may even move to my favorites page next time I update it.
