A local motel that is the brunt of some rooms by the hour jokes. I guess you could say it has a bit of a reputation, probably steeped in about 1% truth.

Crop, convert to greyscale, adjust contrast, add a layer of noise and fade to 60%.

Not sure that the grainy aspect works as well as planned. The newer model vehicles clash with the aged look IMHO. Good composition though and I like the title. I also like the double entendre of the motel's name. The beaten up/tilted mailboxes are a bit of a distraction, but they do add a sense of seediness to the image. Cool capture.

the photo seems to have a slight crude quality to it that is made even better by the title...

Looks old (except for the newer model truck and van). Very urban setting. Overall, I like the simple quality of it but it doesn't have tons of pizazz.
