Paintjob, originally uploaded by jkorpi.

After 10 weeks of a “Photographic Essay” class, I have two full harddrives of images and a increasing risk of heart failure due to stress. Fortunately, I’ve done some work I’m proud of and have progressed as a photographer. In the process of cleaning off my laptop I figured I would post some of my outtakes from last quarter.
This was on a ride home from a visit to a power plant in the area. The guy was putting a new coat of paint on the back of a dumptruck.
