Road Pictures

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a picture of something large and wheeled. Semi trucks, buses, tractors, "monster trucks" -- if it's larger than an SUV (or possessed of more ridiculous wheels, in the case of the monster trucks) it qualifies.

Umm, okay. I thought this would be easy, considering where I work. Turned out, though, that the vehicles at Famous Vehicle Dealer have surprisingly small wheels, considering what they are (and I'm not telling you what they are). It was well after sunset when I left work tonight, too, so I wasn't exactly working in ideal shooting conditions. I didn't manage a single decent photo of a large-wheeled vehicle as I drove around looking for same. I had to settle for this red whatever-it is was from the drive home.

Then this tanker turned up at Golf Links and Wilmot, mere blocks from my house.

As it happens, I photographed this coolly retro-looking tanker last week. The shot was a bit lightstruck, and I've played with the sky to make it uniform. I like the color combination, though.

Stressful day tomorrow, with Tuffy going back to the surgeon. So I expect you to forgive me for not rattling on tonight. I've got to take something for my looming indigestion, and go to bed. Good night!
