"Mack Truck Door Detail" by Ashley Mortenson


"Mack Truck Door Detail" from an abandoned Mack truck found in a field. The mirror shadow created a wonderful shape on the door which had multiple layers of faded, flaking paint. I loved the rust and colorful paint juxtaposing with the chrome handle, and how the colors changed depending on if they were in light or shadow. 


"A Passage in Time" by Ashley Mortenson

"A Passage in Time"- this is a detail from the side doors from an abandoned car by the side of the road. I was captivated by the textures and the Z form of the doorjamb/side chrome. You can faintly see the reflections of houses, trees, the sky, and there's a self portrait of sorts in there.
