ABC Wednesday - J is for Junk



J is for Junk.............



a motorcycle wreck in a salvage yard




There really is no hope for this one.

Even as parts it would be considered a long shot.

It can be truly classified as Junk, and will most likely be sold as scrap metal.

Not too many vehicles in the salvage yard are classified as junk - even though they look like it to the majority of people.

There is value in the smallest of pieces, and it takes experience and knowledge to know the difference.

As the economy gets tighter, and people begin to repair their vehicles instead of buying new, these "junks" will began to be seen in a new light.

It can also be thought of as another form of recycling - so it's good for the Earth too!


This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  3. Junk is something that all of us have in some dark corners, but the word never came to my mind, when I was thinking about J. Instead of junk, I went for jump...

    Anyway, nice job on pickin up the word and great photograph to go along with it. I hope it wasn't your bike.

  5. One man's junk can certainly be another man's treasure..
    Neat way of thinking for the 'J' posting.

  7. There's always demand for scrap metal! We see the men in vans on a constant mission! Not all have friendly faces.

  9. In junk we drown...but they say there will be soon time when every piece of metal has a big value. Not that we are out of metal, we are out of oil to process it.

  13. Hilary - Glad you like it. Sometimes you just have to work with what's in front of you - even if it isn't pretty. I appreciate your comment!

  14. Denise - I hear you! Some of the people in the salvage yards are just as scary. I stick close to my husband's side.

  15. R and J - the price for scrap metal has risen dramatically over the last few months. Can only mean one thing - supplies are low. We need to be careful with all our natural resources! Thanks for stopping by!
