The Juggernaut . It was a sad discovery, to come upon the hollowed out carcass of a classic 75 Series . Before I drove and owned Landrovers, I was assigned a #landcruiser troop carrier back when I worked for Red Cross . It was an amazing machine, super fuel efficient and economical for its size and easy to fix mechanically if it broke down, which was almost never, there was no place it would not go . Just as comfortable swimming through flood waters or parked outside a night club, tt was also almost a home away from. For there was no place you could not park it on the side of the road and sleep in the back if you got caught out between check points, waiting for the rains to seize, or just too tired to drive on . It was a real workaholic for whom no task being beneath it, from transporting social workers between communities, school kids between villages or tsunami orphans a day out to the beach to desensitize them, or taking timber to a restoration job or the distribution of dry rations . But today there is only #nostalgia . For here is a #ruin of a well designed machine in a desolate #landscape. No longer in its prime and lost in time, unloved, fragmented, stripped of all that can be recycled and abandoned where it fell, we are left imagining these objects at a given time during the process when nature is at work. We have sympathy and appreciation for things that where once as youthful and indistructable as ourselves, will change and may soon be gone . They signify the universality of #decay, of death and remind us of the revages of time. That as we are, others have been, and others will follow. What was once new and bold will one day be a anecdote of stories . #landscapephotography #bw_photooftheday #world_bw  #ig_bw #show_us_bnw #bestphotogram_bnw #bnw_eye #ig_impulse_bw  #blackandwhitephotography #instablackandwhite #insta_pick_bw . #amateurs_bnw #bnw_captures #ig_contrast_bnw #edits_bnw . #theartofslowliving #minimal . #wonderlust #letsgosomewhere #experienceoman #4x4 #offroading #monochromatic #followtheForcesnotTheForm #travelphotography
