Print: Suburban Scrap

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago on my Pentax 6x7 using a 105mm lens. It's of a totaled car that I found in an alley in Wilmette, a few blocks away from my house.  I took a photo of it on my Pentax MX, but wanted to make a nice print with a large medium format negative. My dad thinks the background is too distracting, but I wanted to give the photo a sense of place. The whole point of this photo for me is showing how out of place the totaled car is in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. In any regards, I think the contrast turned out quite nice.

Hopefully the weather will improve soon, as I have a few things I've been meaning to shoot with the 6x7. Finger's crossed!

Thanks for looking!
