The old truck…

and its soft patina of colors..

On a day when I’m out just photographing what comes, I am often surprised at what becomes that days favorite image.

Was it the beautiful pond with trees reflected upon its still surface?

Perhaps the riot of peonies flaunting their pinks?

The orchard with budding fruit?

No, no, and no.

It was the old rusted truck. You knew it would be.

There is just something about old trucks and their curved lines and soft patina developed over time that pulls me in.

I didn’t fight it. I just shot it…from every angle.

I love those times when a subject draws me in. It’s almost meditative.
