    What a great ole truck! I would make a great subject for a watercolor study.. or for a group watercolor-painting outing!

      Thanks. It might make a lovely watercolor at that. I would like to go back and shoot it again – different time of day, etc. thanks for visiting and for your comment.

    strange; this says it was published on the 4th, but the notice arrived just now…

      I noticed that. I’ll have to look into it. Sometimes Feedburner just seems to do what it wants πŸ™

    Wow! What a dramatic photo! Can you let me know somewhere on my website what type of camera you use? I’m looking for an affordable camera – I’m a beginner and just want NICE photos. You can see on my blog what kind of photos I take. Let me know – I want an expert opinion like yours!

    Rust never looked this beautiful πŸ™‚ Fabulous shot Ron. Look forward to seeing the truck in different lighting.

    • Ron November 18, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

      Thank you Madhu. The truck is “resting” on Lynne’s second cousin’s farm. I do have other shots I should process.

    Is this your most recent shot? I’m a bit confused with the navigation. Please advice. πŸ˜‰

    • Ron November 18, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

      Sorry for the confusion. I have two blogs. This one,, is a part of my main web site along with my galleries, etc. The other,, is my WordPress blog and the most active and the one you “follow.” Several newer posts are on the WordPress blog. Hope this helps.

    I love how nature takes over everything: break things down and build things up again. In this photo you’ve captured the power and the patience of nature.

    vibrant takeover of nature.

    I absolutely love this shot! Looks like you’re from the Lee County area πŸ™‚ We moved to Pine Island in 1992 (just before Hurricane Andrew) and then lived in Cape Coral for a bit. In 1997 we moved to Lakeland for 15 yrs and now have recently moved to CO. You’re making me homesick! Besides email, there’s no where to ‘follow’ your blog. Maybe you just haven’t activated it through WP?

    • Ron August 14, 2013 at 10:02 am #

      Hi Carol. I am so glad you found me. Indeed, we’ve been on Pine Island for nine years and are loving it. My primary and most active blog is It is a WordPress blog and you can following it by clicking the “Follow” tab at the bottom right of the screen.

    Love this one Ron – Really has personality doesn’t it?! Oh the stories it could tell πŸ™‚
