Everyone has those vehicles that you love for the body style, the speed or the looks. So for this week’s challenge I am choosing transportation!
I tend to like the old vehicles that you find left in the pasture where they rusted and show lots of use. It is because I wonder of the stories that go with them. So I am sharing some of my favorites and some you may not have seen before.
My all time favorite is this one from a 1954 Chevrolet 4400. You could tell by the wear and the “accessories” that it was a very long used work truck. This angle on the photo appeals to me as it seems to invite you into the door for the stories it could tell.
This second one is a favorite for the history behind it, also. An old truck found in rural Oklahoma and lived its life in the oil business.
For the third photo I chose another work truck. Found at the Har-Ber Village in Grove, Oklahoma it was part of the fleet of Jones Truck Lines.My favorite part is what I think might be the blinker on the top that is a single bulb.
Do you have any favorite photos or stories to tell about vehicles or transportation?

Going thru photos again and found a pattern – headlights. Old cars, trucks and tractors. They all had headlights. So here is a collection for you! Enjoy!
Along a side street in San Juan we ran across this little, and I do mean little, chapel. The colors were bright and the gold and silver brought some shimmer to the space.
Sighhhhh… in looking thru photos in my library today I found this overlooked photo of a ladybug and a daisy. I fell in love immediately. Such a great photo with my readiness for Spring to arrive this year!
Having fell in love with the streams and waterfalls around Multnomah & Wakheena falls I continually find new photos that I haven’t shared with you in my library of photos from that area. Here are a few more for you!
(note the two streams in which one was taken in the sun – Sunny stream – and one in the shade – Shady stream)

Most of you don’t know, but Hubby proposed to me on February 13, 201o. So we really celebrate that day instead of the traditional Valentine’s day. I have many friends who were proposed to or married on the 13th or 14th of February. Alas, today is the day to celebrate love. So I will show you one of my favorite photos that I took from my wedding.
Forget Phil – the daffodils are coming! So it means Spring is on its way! Here are the first photos of the daffodils in our yard. Yes, they just look green but inside those little buds are some beautiful blooms!!
Having just returned from a trip to Montana I have some photos to share! One of them that I have already shared on my Facebook page caught the attention of several people. The more I look at it the more I like it so I am sharing it with you here! I like the differences in the landscape and the rolling clouds bringing a snow shower. Hope you enjoy!
All we see are shadows, light, and color – which if I recall from biology is really a product of light. Anywho, this week the challenge from Where’s My Backpack is shadows. I kind of like this one. It’s fun to see what we can find in shadows every day and I’ve played with them a bit. My favorite one so far is of my nephew, back in 2010, fishing in Roaring River, MO. You will notice that it seems a bit upside down but isn’t that how our shadows appear to us?
I spent a week and a half just outside Missoula, Montana. I’ve already shared a few of the photos with you. This particular photo seemed just right for the Two Cents Tuesday Challenge:Funny.
As I sat at the bar of the Bayern Brewery the bar cat, who had not left his cardboard box all day, walked straight down the bar to plop himself in my lap. As you can tell by my eyes in this photo that my husband took, I found it to be quite funny and very odd.
On a recent trip to west Texas for hunting with my Hubby, I found this Chevrolet G60 in the field. I can’t seem to find a good bit of information on it or the MID equipment which is probably a vendor of PTO machinery. If you have any information please share!
We spent a weekend in Beavers Bend park in Oklahoma and though it is winter there were still plenty of interesting subjects for my camera. The river that runs through the park is very low – Hubby estimated at least 6 ft. So while he fished I walked along the exposed river bed edges and found these treasures. Enjoy!

One of our puppies, Blue, when he was even more of a pup! Cutest, sweetest face!
An unknown berry found in a field during this past snow fall. Enjoy!
We had a snow here in Texas on Christmas Day. Technically, a white Christmas. It had it beautiful moments but wasn’t really heavy enough or cold enough to stay around long. So I did get a few photos to share with you of the smaller aspects. Here are some that I altered to black and whites.
Red is my favorite color. Mix it with others and it makes the colors pop. So here is my favorite fall red leaves photo! Enjoy!
While spending our time in Gentry, AR we came upon this very tiny, old home. Of course, it had not been lived in for many, many years I am sure.
