In the same vein as what I just wrote to Antonio with his Kodak that kissed the Earth. I'm with BB, employ a little Nanna Technology to this baby. A bit of tape, and she'll be right for another few years yet.
An acute observation well captured too by the way mate!
I think I prefer the sepia versions, Dave. I do like the color of rust with the blue sky, however, especially in your first, the sepia version gives it a rather strong feeling of either Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" or perhaps - "Road Warrior".
