In doing my junkyard paintings, one of the parts I really enjoy are the characters I come upon down the seemingly endless rows of vehicles. There is always a nod of acknowledgement from the other automotive scavengers; not enthusiastic and benevolent, more one of primal respect you might envision a predator granting another beast leeway around it's already claimed carcass.
This awesome gentleman granted me a photo after letting me know he wasn't very "photogenic". I told him his distinguished character was much more valuable.
