As I’ve said previously, I really love old trucks and photographing them. There’s something so interesting about them. Textures, shapes and stories untold.
I enjoyed working on Emilio’s original image and the challenge presented by not knowing the background story of the image – and the photo being taken by someone else – a very fun challenge. (Click on Emilio’s link above to see the original image).
I asked Emilio, if he’d mind if I had another go at it. He gave me the go ahead 🙂 After hearing Emilio’s story of the trucks, I thought I’d like to try for a more colourful mood – even something a bit quirky.
I managed the colourful, but not the quirky – it seems these trucks are very much of their own era. It was fun though to try and create a different mood. Changing the first truck was my foremost thought here – the rest evolved as I went. These 3 images are basically the same, except for the first truck. Here are my results for the 2nd editing attempts. Fun, fun!!! Thanks Emilio and also to Stacy who hosts the One Photo Focus challenge 😀
A note on my blog:
I am presently having issues with images not displaying correctly, so I have reverted to my original theme, which I hope displays correctly… It’s something I’m presently researching and hope to resolve at some point. Seems I am not on my own and that perhaps it has something to do with responsive design. I’m on a learning curve here 😉
