Just something cool about an old abandoned truck…. I have several of this particular one on a country road I frequent in Wapwallopen, Pennsylvania… from all different seasons. It sets the stage for a great shot every time !!!

Awesome work Gail. I love old junk cars! If this was taken in PA…. we’d love to see your work in the Welcome PA Group (I sent you an invite). We’ll just need you to add the nearest city/town in the description.Thanks! Lori
Thank you Lori! I would love to join your group, Thank you for the invite… We just had our 67th Annual Fine Arts Fiesta here in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania… My theme was “Jewels Of The City” I have literally hundreds upon hundreds of shots from Luzerne County… From the Courthouse to the Planters Peanut Building… Our area is home to many architectural beauties!!!

There is something very sad and final about this scene, even though it is a inanimate collection of metal that is the subject. That old truck was once a useful, working possession and the way you have photographed and processed the picture emphasises its end.
Although it is considered a personal success when your artwork can invoke feelings in the viewer, I feel bad it stirred up feelings of sadness…. The emphasis on the color in this photo is to bring to life the many years this ol truck was indeed useful. By the different layers of colors I am sure it went through a multitude of changes through the years… Fortunately, through photographers like you and I, this truck will live on ! If it could talk imagine the stories it could tell! I have seen your work and it is beautfiul.
Thanks Brian !!!
Thank you sir !
Love this find! I would love for you to share this image with my group Time Wornhost… Sheryl Langston
I would certainly be happy to share this image with your group “TIME WORN” … As a former antique dealer I have ALWAYS had an interest in things of old… I would salvage even scraps of antiques to incorporate with artwork just to “save” a piece of history. Thank you Sheryl! So glad you enjoyed it.
Super old find.
