The Old Good Year Truck

I've always thought that when old trucks go to die, their final drivers seem to park them in a spot that will be perfect for photography some day. That's kind of them.

 

This truck was found when we were leaving the dinosaur dig in northern Montana. Sometimes it pays to get off the main road and drive around these tiny old towns like Rudyard. Small, out-of-the-way towns are always fun to drive through, but I try to get off the main street and do random zig-zagging looking for nicely composed scenes... old trucks... you know, the sorts of things that are just sitting around waiting for a photo.

 

Also, you may notice a new feature go live today (or soon) at some point on the blog. It's called the Meebo Bar, and I think you'll like it! The best feature, to me, is the ability to drag a picture and very easily share it. I think you know that I invite you all to share these works freely with your friends, and this should make it easy and fun.
