Enjoyed this, John. From the picture it would also seem that the aging gentleman is sitting in an aging truck.
Embarrassed to say Mary, but I actually took this one-handed with a point and shoot from the confines of my cherished Toyota Tundra. It was raining (not Iguanas) and I also had prior information the owner of the truck and the property is a gunsmith. Sooo not wanting to get shot or wet, I guess you could say I did my own drive-by shooting. One thing for sure I got lucky with the outcome. Personally, I love this photo.
It is a wonderful photo and sits so well with the poem. Nicely done on both :)
It has an impressionistic feel to it. The red on the tree with the dots of red elsewhere in the photo really makes it feel painterly. Very nice.
Teresa, I almost cropped that red out. Something tapped me on the shoulder and said leave it, leave it be. I am glad I listened.
Very cool photo and oh, do I ever love the greenness of your site, and the lovely tree trunks down near the bottom........
John,An excellent photo, though with a scary kind of stillness as though the driver just might have been lying in wait....Especially after reading some of your words!!!Eileen
The simplicity in this is great.
I see him sitting there too, is he about to smoke his pipe? Lovely
Unpretentious and well said.
Short and sweet! Love the image!
