This child’s old toy car was passed as I walked along a dirt lane in the country side here near Zug, Switzerland. I couldn’t wait to get some snaps of it.

It reminded me of the days I used to spend playing with things just like this in the country town I grew up in on the western Darling Downs as a boy with my older brother. Dirt roads can be so much fun for boys.
