THIS OLD TRUCK
I moved to Wasilla over 2 years ago. This old truck is on the side of the road, on someone's property. It's not bothering anything. What is usually what you would call an eyesore, I find to be an eye catcher. I pass it almost every day and I check it out just to see if anything else has happened naturally.
This past winter it was pretty much buried. I guess this is almost a black and white photo. It looked very cold and lonely.
Yesterday it was very much alive. Wild roses are blooming every where and bringing more color. They are taking over the engine compartment of the truck.
I took this photo right after I moved here. I sent copies to my family and my sister had it framed and of course hung it in her house. A niece has done the same thing. I've sold several copies of it and sent them outside (outside is the Alaska slang for not in Alaska). My son has stopped at it and has taken pictures of his family with it.
I don't know what it is, but this old truck catches my eye. I wonder about it's history, who all owned it and what it was used for (it's in a farming / ranch area).
Today I'll be driving past it and I'm wondering how it's going to look. It's been raining hard all night and most of the morning.
