After stopping at the side of Highway 2 between Calgary and Edmonton Alberta to shoot a couple of old cars, (see previous posts) we hopped back into our rental car and turned down a nearby country side road in search of more rusted treasure. About half a mile down the road, at the end of farm lane, we were rewarded with this old Ford truck. Again we circled around it looking for the best angles. I love the earthy colours of the rust and the nostalgic lines of these old vehicles.
A couple of days ago I posted Flamed Out – the car and trailer we spotted on the side of Hwy 2 between Calgary and Edmonton Alberta. We had fun shooting from all angles and this is the car on the other side of the trailer. According to a sign posted beside this spot, Creative Machining offered “On Site Portable Machining Services”. I can just imagine this guy pulling into some farm with his trailer and spending a few days tending to the machining needs of the farmer. Creative indeed!
As I mentioned in my last post I have been in Alberta this past week. We flew into Calgary and picked up the rental car and headed up Hwy 2 to Edmonton. Just past Red Deer Rick and I both spotted this car in a field at the side of the road. The proverbial question popped into our heads. Do we turn around? That would make a great picture! Now, this is a four lane Highway so you can’t just turn around on the spot. At the next cut off we just had to go back. Fifteen minutes later we parked as far off the Highway as we could and trudged through the snow to get our shots of this Flamed Out Car!
