Photo of the Week: Retrospection by Megan Deitz


Where was the photo taken?

On the side of highway 421 near Ivanhoe, NC

What were you thinking before you shot the photo?

I sure hope I don’t get hit by a semi while I’m photographing this!

What were you thinking after you took the photo?

Many thoughts about the history of the car & its owner crossed my mind; who was the first owner, what was life like for that person, what happened to the original owner, why is this car abandoned with a broken window in this field?

What do you like about the photo?

The simplicity of the subject and the mystery that comes from all the unknowns.

What camera did you use to take the picture?

Canon 5d mark ii

How did you get into photography?

Since I was a child (even in diapers) I have always had a camera in my hand thanks to my dad. I document everything in life and nothing brought me greater joy than capturing moments that would soon fade. Once I was about to complete my associate degree, in something far less interesting, I realized I could make a living doing what had always been a love of mine. I decided to turn this part time job into a business and have been officially in business for myself since 8/08.
