Black and White: Local meat

I had a really hard time with this challenge. I wanted to take a picture of something that looks like it should be black and white, and I couldn't find anything I really liked. I went to work tonight and took my camera with me, snapping stuff while I was out (even sitting at a stoplight through the front windshield). There was a meat truck sitting in the parking lot at my work, and I snapped a quick picture on the way in the door. A friendly 60-some-odd-year-old man was coming out the door at the time, and saw me take the picture. He said, "I can set you right up, you don't need to take a picture!" I actually ended up with several shots I liked (once in black and white), but my husband picked this one out of my top two.

About the photo: SOOC except the black and white conversion. The conversion itself really wasn't very noticeable, except for the credit card stickers on the left side. The truck was already white with black lettering on it.

being married to a TOTAL Buckeye fan, I'm likin' this picture A LOT! I really like the silver on the handle and the pad lock... really shiny against the rest which is sort of dulled and scratched... i like that

Good find! I really love the simplicity of this picture.

very fun! I am glad you finally found something. :)

I think if you could have increased the contrast a bit, this would have really popped! I love the vintage feel!! Fun shot!
