Yesterday morning, I tried a new route for my power walk.

It was a dreary, overcast day with a bit of wet snow drizzling down, so I decided to stick to the city streets to see if I could find anything that might lend itself to being photographed in these conditions.

As I walked through the industrial area, this scrap metal yard caught my eye. The old truck behind the fence was the only thing that seemed to still have its original form. Despite this fact, it obviously had the same destiny as all of the unrecognizable pieces of scrap metal in the enclosure.

On my return home, I researched scrap metal. I was surprised to learn that metals are among the most easily recyclable materials on earth and that scrap metal recycling is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint.

I tried rendering this photo black and white in post editing. In B/W, the old brown truck and the few other bits of color in the scrap pile got lost, so I decided to leave the photo as shot.
