Trailer Trash Tuesday


   When on our travels I am always on the lookout for thrashed old travel trailers.  They make for great pictures and if the setting is right, all the better.  Some were too far off in the distance and I wasn't about to go traipsing across private property to get in close for a shot.  I saw a lot of regular mobile home trailers in a sorry state, but it was the oldies used for vacationing I was in the hunt for. 
Another problem was I think someone is living in there! and so I didn't take pictures of them.

Seen near Cheyenne, Wyoming

This is just a neat old trailer.  I like how it has a front and rear door, each that swings open in the opposite direction from the other.  And that large front window up front in what would be the "living room" where you could sit in your chair and look out just like at home.
These are two different images, I think I just stepped back a ways on this one.

  1. How interesting to just find these abandoned by the wayside. You can't help wondering how it got there or where it had come from or how many adventures were had by the owners.

  2. Well, I guess you could look out of that window but there's not much scenery to see, is there? Past its best for habitation but just coming into its own for photography!

  3. I guess it'll be there forever, would be quite an expense to someone to have it shifted and used for scrap metal.

  13. The Trailer Park Troubadours are going to be at the Kuumbwa in Santa Cruz near the end of October. One of their hits is "Livin' in Aluminum". We can walk from our house.

  14. The black and white is so stark. You have juxtaposed two entirely different moods.

  15. This brought to mind "The Long, Long Trailer" movie with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

  16. I cannot imagine driving up upon a camper like this sitting out in the middle of nowhere. No electricity or running rater. Such a barren landscape. Great shots. genie
