Sweet.

The tones really capture that used and neglected feeling.

I like how he captured the overspray from the stencils.

Yeah, that's really nice.

It'd be even better in a more realistic setting.

I actually hurts a little to see these amazing freight cars photoed on a BBQ Grill.

I've been thinking the same thing - such spectacular work in such a bizarre setting (I thought it was a car hood).  A nice 1x2 photo diorama would seal the deal for me.  Still, it is fantastic work.

my guess is he's really focused on the cars -and so he doesn't have the need/time/interest in a diorama for photos.

I think he shoots the photos on the roof or hood of his car.

Yes, apparently ed keeps his grill in pristine condition.

While I like to see cars in 'complete' settings, I can see why some choose to shoot cars like this or on mirrors/white background (such as mann) you look/focus at the car only and not the scene.

I think the white background or a mirror would be better, but honestly, seeing that car on even a strip of ballasted track (with the "horizon" hidden) would probably blow peoples minds.

Maybe that's why he doesn't do it. :D
