So I'm sitting here staring - again - at the following image ...
and (this time) I was focusing (again) on weathering on the car roofs in
the lower left quadrant. And especially on the first car past/above the
one with the farm equipment and the partial roof of the car in the lower
Can someone explain the white spots on the first car I mentioned above?
It looks to me like seagull crap. But I'm at a loss to explain -where- the
droppings occurred ... they aren't near enough to the edge to make sense
to me. And there aren't any on the roof walk. And yet they seem to be
"lined up along the edge and pretty much at the same distance from the
edge. How is that possible? (I grew up where seagulls were common
and I've been 'observing' them and their behaviors for a long time.) I
can't even explain them landing on a freight car easily. I guess they
might land on a car spotted on a wharf ... but that far from the edge?
I love the look of the partial car in the bottom right corner. Anyone out
there have methods they think resembles that car's roof? Share? Or
should I just ask this on "Weathering".
