I have become curious and gone through some of your "Beauty in age""-photos, Alicia. This one as many others is marvellous. The red of the roof, which repeats itself in the old car and the wooden facade, losing its white colour and the green line of the grass in front. I simply love photos like that. It's perfect, as if it was set by a film director. In this case you being the artist, who noticed it and took this photograph. Thank you! Of course a golden star! The more I look at the image, the more I see.

My best regards, May

You are so very kind, May, with your wonderful commentary - I am very flattered. I am also delighted that you have enjoyed this photo so much. It is these spur-of-the-moment shots that sometimes happen to express what I saw. I turned around looking for a through road here, and found this, simply beckoning for a photo. I wonder if the owner of this truck knows how beautiful it is ;) Many thanks for finding my backroad truck and the gold*!! Warm greetings to you, alicia

This is at my parents' house!!! I don't know if my dad keeps it because it is beautiful (your photo of it is gorgeous, but we will admit that the truck sometimes just looks a bit tacky sitting out there in the yard rusting), but he does have some attachment to it because he's had a few offers to buy it, but won't part with it. A few years back, blackberries were growing up all around it and all you could really see was the cab of the truck. We have people come and take pictures all of the time and we've even walked outside to see groups of ladies sitting in with easels in a semi-circle around it painting it on occasion.

This is so amazing, ericksec! I am just dumbfounded that someone who is actually the owner of something posted on GE sees it and is a member of panoramio so can comment on it! I did receive your suggestion to move the locator, and your placement is right on it - I had not zoomed in far enough to get it spot on. I will change it. I'm so glad that I found this truck without the blackberries, and I think you should get rid of that notion that it looks tacky. This old 'relic' is a fine representation of its era, and while perhaps beautiful in its heyday, I think it is only improving with age (perhaps for different reasons ;)). You've conjured up a wonderful vision of all the ladies sitting around with easels - I wish I could have been able to get a photo of that!

I'm delighted that you found my photo and thank you for your wonderful compliment. Tell your father thank you for providing the wonderful photo op ;D (and painting op!). This was my first visit to Hansville, but I will stop by and check on this ol' truck's fate should I happen up there again.

Cheers, alicia

I Wonder if youve gone to photograph Cornucopia, OR? Another Killer Ghost Town :D
