Full Metal Jackets

There are lots of ways to look at something, up close to wide and long and everything in between. The range of possibilities with a subject are darn near unlimited and so it was with the Campbell Memorial bus that sits in the nether reaches of the former Frontier Drive-In in Center, Colorado .  The defunct theatre is the more obvious subject but the bus has its advocates, as well.

Outback is a graveyard of decommissioned travel trailers, church busses and long haulers. It’s as good a place as any for a covey of bent metal relics. See a sliver of snowcapped Sangre de Cristos middle left just above the red container. Yes, that is the right turn signal of the Campbell Memorial church bus in pic one.

The brilliance of this morning's blog title goes without saying, but the stop and signal in the bottom photograph emphasize it. As with the photographic possibilities, the meanings are unlimited as well!

I am always fascinated by the long line of sad and dilapidated looking trailors every time I pass by that old drive-in. There is definitely a lot of artistic opportunities worth visiting in this small area- you captured it brilliantly!
