This is an image that is in bad shape and I did not feel like taking the time to work it up, so I just through a texture screen on it and ran it though several filters to give it this look.  The sign of the Gulfarium is what really stands out in this image.  I would estimate the date to be early 1950’s and I do not know where the location of the accident is.  Below is the same image without some of the filters, but with the texture screen to clean up a lot of the negative damage.  I like the color over-lay,  toned images have always been a favorite of mine.  Here is the “straight” image …

    • Thanks for the comment … I thought that it could have been on Hwy 90 / Nine Mile Road, but I was not sure. I have quite a few of these type images that are some what interesting, however they are in extremely poor shape. I am getting tired of spending hours working them up in Photoshop before I post them and I still want to put them up on this blog. Experimenting with several different techniques in Photoshop like this will, I think, enable me to give them a different look and feel than just posting them as they are. Thanks for the comment again and please check back … Frank
