busted-up-truckBusted up truck ƒ/4.5, 1/500 s, 200 ISO

There was this truck that was all busted up at the Nicollet County Fair. I think the cops had it on display to encourage people to wear their seatbelts and not drink and drive. There was a sheet of paper on the door that talked about how the car got all busted up. I don’t think that the person who was driving this truck died though, just got in a nasty accident.

This shot is my submission for JPG Magazine‘s next issue.

I also changed my RSS and atom feeds to have the full image instead of the dinky thumbnails. Let me know if you end up having any problems with that (or anything else really) now that I went ahead and changed things.
