Two weeks ago I posted a Fun photo..... this week ... the exact opposite.
if you want to drive in Argentina..... think carefully..... and also look at the statistic of road casualties..... they are horrendous.
The cars are good and the roads are good.... the problem is the other drivers....... not only they think that they own the road...... they are always travelling two days too late...... hence 140 Km/hr is necessary !!!
During my 6 month in Argentina I saw many vehicles smashed big time and when you read the papers you will see the reports of accidents all the time.Good luck

Un sujet toujours intéressant pour les photographes et tu n'as pas raté l'occasion d'en faire une photo intéressante. Cette voiture à surement eu des plus beaux jours mais la dernière ballade s'est mal terminée. Bonne composition en diagonale.

Not a nice picture to look at, but it's good as a warning! In some parts of Brazil we have the same problem... And it has good quality to show the details, with very good colors and sharpness! Excellent job!

Dobar dan, popodne.
Kod mene jutro.
Interesantan i dobar tekst, dobro upozorenje ...
Kod nas u Srbiji ima mnogo saobracajnih nezgoda i zrtava.
Dobra rad, i upozorenje.
Pogled na slupan automobil koji svojim izgledom izaziva strah i opominje ...
Sve najbolje za vikend.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
At my morning.
An interesting and good text, good warning ...
Here in Serbia has a lot of traffic accidents and casualties.
Good work, and a warning.
View of the wrecked car by its appearance causes fear, warning ...
All the best for the weekend.

An unfortunate accident, Gus, brought this super-wrecked car to this yard - hope everyone was safely out from.
The car is damaged even beyond recognition, can;t say which model this was.
A lesson to all drivers, well documented here.
Have a nice weekend,

This is fantastic graveyard of wreckage and goldmine too which is a very good business to be in actually. I am sure this provides you endless hours of photo opps there depicting the endless rows of irons, the paint and color etc. An excellent photo indeed! I can imagine you had a great time there and thsk to the related infor notes. Congrats

Hello Gus, What a terrible view. The old rusty cars are excellent photographic topics, Such a view is just tragic. I can't understand drivers going so fast. Good reportage.

You are reporting this documentary photohraph by making the wreck car of a traffic accident into an example, so it's always terrible to see wreckage of a carby high speed. The change in a number is set aside and there is such an accident also in what country. Drunken driving and a speeding offense are especially dangerous. Although I took the driver's license after retirement, I am not operating until I continue up to now, since operation is fundamentally dreadful.

Muy interesante nota sobre la conduccion y resultados de la misma en Argentina, no tenia ni ideal que podian ser tan temerarios.
Desde luego este coche totalmente destrozado es una buena prueba de ello.
Muy buena nitidez que nos permite recrearnos en los detalles aunque sean tragicos, la luz está muy bien gestionada, asi como el bonito colorido muy natural.
Disfruta el fin de semana.
Mis mejores deseos mi amigo.

it is not a pretty picture to see, especially knowing that it is an accident, I know exactly what you mean, I drive in India, where other motorists also come from manholes, two eyes are not enough;)
have a good WE...

Ohh what a terrible crash! I think seeing the previous car all of the passengers would die.
Here in Greece we have a lot of accidents and the wrecks looks like this.

This is a very good recommendation for journey to Argentina, a country which I have not visited but is still on traveling wish list.
You have excellently captured this badly damaged cars.
This remind me my trip to Jordan some time back.
Thanks for posting it.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

I think that this is a world problem, a lot drivers drive to quick, also the car drives with the driver!
I have more than one million km, happiness to today not heavy accidents!
Maybe a picture for the young drivers.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

sad story and so familiar to me. We're not different from Argentina. Well, we are actually in one respect...our roads are bad, you know. And 140+ km/hr is no big deal here. That's why our roads look like cemeteries, flanked with crosses and flowers.
Excellent documentary shot with great diagonal placing of the subject.
Concerning your comment to my pic - have you heard of the rule of thirds?;) It says that objects that are right in the center of the frame will be ignored by the viewer. Can that be the answer to your puzzlement?:))))
Or maybe it's just typical western political correctness;)
Have a great week!

Que idea original, pero poco atrayente para el turismo....o alla no hay axidentes?
Pero una original idea para descansar de lindos paisajes, mares y playas

Oh dear, what an awful thought, I truly wonder what happened to the people inside this wreck! Talk about extremes of photos, one minute a happy one and then this. But it sends a very necessary message to us drivers: slow down. Having drive over 4,000 kilometres in Europe recently, I'm all the more aware of slowing down and enjoying the ride, rather than rushing to the end.
Thanks for sharing, un abrazo to you and D
