Why I like this Photograph #6

The title of this image is “Retired Pick Up Truck”. It is in fact just that. The tonal range with a hint of sepia give it appropriate aging. The depth of field is spot on as the only thing really in focus is the mirror. The background is soft without clear definition engaging the viewer’s imagination without being a distraction. The primary subject is clearly the mirror. Being slightly off center breaks any unnecessary symmetry. Graphically the triangular elements in the mirror hold the eye offering a glimpse into the history of the truck and presenting questions. Who drove this truck, what did it haul and when?
