This old truck has clearly sat at the edge of this meadow, next to a clump of conifers, for many, many years.  I love the way the wheels have sunk into the dirt.  It feels as though the truck will be completely buried in a few more decades.  It sits right next to a beach, where the moist salt air hastens its rusting and disintegration.  And freezing, snowy winters and rainy summers also take their toll.

It’s probably a safe bet that this pickup ain’t goin’ nowhere…ever again.



  1. How beautifully melancholic.

    • Thanks, SII. 🙂

      PS I enjoyed the “In & Around” section of your blog. I visited Melbourne in ’01. Your images brought back some nice memories…

  2. Yes it’s almost like it’s being swallowed whole by the earth. Nicely done.

    • Thanks Lyle.

      I definitely had the feeling that the earth was “eating” the truck…

      I wish it was possible to set up a time-lapse cam to record the truck being “consumed” over the next 50 years or so!

      Not that I’d be around to see the result, but perhaps someone else would find it interesting. 😉
