TRUCKS and other beautiful things

Towns are different, with their unique looks & styles. Always at the beginning or at the edge there are junkyards, taking care of the old until their recycled end.

Trucks and cars, tired and retired from their tasks, lie dormant with their own memories of heroic deeds. For many years they have accomplished impossible tasks for man. Their memories are starting to fade, like the color on their skins.

Trucks, the modern workhorses, are the heroes we’ve used, worn out, and left in a field to retire. These steel marvels are more beautiful now than when shiny and new. Amazing, what time can do to metal and paint. How the brilliant colors are homogenized with rust. There is beauty in their patinas, their histories, and in their engine hearts.
