Can you dig it?

Had the chance to run around the Potsdam, Germany area a bit today, looking for some interesting things to shoot.  Being a huge Tonka fan (back when they were made of metal and lots of sharp edges), I just had to run out into this construction zone to shoot this fella.  Can you dig it?

Wayne Frost I dig it, almost as fun as playing with an Erector set.

Jim Denham I knew that you could! (That’s a quote from a Sanford and Son show I believe – Can you dig it? I knew that you could!) Great angle Jacques, and spot on processing!

Jacques Hey everyone. Thanks for diggin’ this shot. Like I said last week, it sure has been fun keeping my eyes peeled for some non-URBEX subject matter, since I’ve spent the last almost two hears so heavily focused on URBEX photography. Mind you, that does not mean I am done with URBEX (merely diversifying a bit).

Alex: That is so cool that your son likes the shot!
Jim: I was actually thinking about the quote from the movie “The Warriors”, where Cyrus gives his speech to the various gangs and asks several times, “Can you dig it? CAN YOU DIG IIIIIIIIIITTT!?!?” Check that out here at this link —-> Cyrus asks, Can You Dig It?, in the awesome classic, The Warriors.

Toad Hollow Photography I had a fleet of those Tonka trucks, LOVED ’em! What a great image Jacques, I love the deviation in style you’ve taken lately, it’s produced some incredibly wonderful images.
