Top 9 in a challenge in Preserving History – March 26, 2011

January 27, 2011

I photographed this old dump truck at the Museum in Fort Nelson, BC.
The sign on the window read like this:
Marlin Ford
1 Ton
4 cylinder; 40 HP
3 speed with overdrive
4 wheel drum brakes
Original gravel box dump truck
I also noticed it is wearing Good Year Tires!

There was a lot of unavoidable background in this photo, but I loved the old truck. I added three textures by Jerryb4Jones to shadow out the mess.
Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.
Canon EOS 50D; 17-85mm lens
Textures Jerryb4Jones done in Photoshop CS3

    This is a great version of this Old Dump Truck Sis. The treatments add to its age and highlight it’s features. It would be nice to take a ride wouldn’t it :>)) Leslie

  • you know sis, it probably runs. It was a fabulous old thing. I love subjects like it. I’d be happy to go for a ride with you :-)))
    Many thanks for your wonderful comments.
