Red Truck


Hidden behind one of the buildings in the Goldfield Ghost Town was this bright red truck with the back decked out as a fire truck.  I added the painting effect myself.

I also noticed among the tourists enjoying the surroundings, this guy in the skirt....err....kilt.  A truly interesting fashion statement for Arizona.

Love the paint job effect, and the kilt is one way to keep cool I suppose!

A wool skirt in Phoenix when it is more than 100 degrees seams a little out of season.

That truck is a good subject for the painting effect.
A man in a kilt is something you don't see every day around here.

I guess the kilt is not made of wool. Clever choice to walk in the desert! :-) I like that truck and the effects on the shot too.

I like that man in the kilt :)

Love the painting effect. Maybe if that is a cotton kilt it would be rather cool & breezy!

I was about to compliment the painter until I read your text! Nice job.

Every community needs a red fire truck

Your photo of the red truck and the painting effect are superb! And, oh? is there a man in a kilt in the second photo. He is probably on the left. I didn't get that far.

Love that red truck. Nice effect. Brave soul in a skirt.

Nice painting job and of course a kilt is good for air circulation.

Steve Reed said...

LOL -- do you think he's Scottish, or just eccentric?

(I have a blog pal in Montana who bought a kilt for himself, but he wrote about how he'd never been able to wear it. Apparently they're kind of a "thing" in the Pacific Northwest?)

Looks like an old Ford. Nice effect. It adds some pizazz to the photo! The guy wearing the kilt kills me!
