Meet Rusty, the old Thornycroft Trusty by 

Meet Rusty – the old Thornycroft Trusty.

He was built during the 1950s as a prime mover lorry.

After many years of good service, he has now retired and is enjoying a quiet life in the country.

Yes, he is a bit rusty.
Yes he has lost his windows and doors.
Yes, his bumper has dropped (oops – don’t look).
And yes, his lights have dimmed.

But he still has all of his old charm.

Captured in a yard near Bilpin, NSW, Australia.

Canon G12, HDR.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
