Meandering country backroads is always an adventure – one never knows what is around the next corner. This classic old truck was ‘out to pasture’ in one of the paddocks of the Lachlan Shire (NSW Australia).

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    Yeb that is what happens to all things when the use by date has come up “Put into Pastures” I am on my way there.

  • I’m trying to rest but I don’t seem to be allowed – I guess that prevents rusting!! Never will you go out to pasture while there still a seascape to shoot mate …!

    Wonderful find Rosalie. Our son has one of these gracing the entrance to his property up in the Perth hills and it’s a great talking point.
    Take care

  • Even on the edges of Sydney here there are a few properties with an old truck in the ‘front yard’! They sure make great subjects.

    Great shot Rosalie, you see to have a lot of these abandoned trucks over there, they are always popping up lolx

  • There seems to be a tendency to allow them to rest where they expire Irene! Always makes for a great photo op. Thank you.

    Great pic, colours and processing Rosalie.

  • I was surprised at the nice paintwork on the mudguards but the rest was pretty weathered … would be nice to know the story behind some of these relics.

    A fantastic image of a real treasure and a great example of the bonuses of heading up backtracks, Rosalie!!!

  • I’m a real off-the-beaten-track person Phil – and it always pays off. Thanks mate
