1947 Chevy Pickup

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 4 February 2012 in Transportation.

I was driving back from Frederick, MD and took the back roads. I found this old pick up truck along Bear Branch Road. It has seen better days. The next few pictures are pictures of the truck. And I forgot to change my ISO so the pictures didn't turn out so great.

PS - This is the awesome thing about taking back and "side" roads...I am lucky to have these alternatives on the way to my work...the only route that gets boring is the interstate!

this truck certainly has a personality and the spots of light and iso grains help to bring it out:). nice background too
