A Little Rusty....

It's a short trip from this house, to Rural.

Along the back roads, there are places that have been there for many years.

And then, you'll see some thing that was just put there, 
and left.  Maybe they just didn't know what else to do with it.

For instance, an old truck.

Sometimes, you see old trucks and equipment sitting out front, as a sort of decoration.
I'm pretty sure this one isn't for decoration.  Parked behind bales of hay,
and stuck behind bushes.

Maybe it still runs.  Some would say it needs a paint job.
I happen to like that rust.

We almost missed it, and had to turn around and go back for a photo.

Another International.
That must have been a popular truck brand, in it's day.

If we ever finish getting the weeding done around here,
we need to get out and search for more Rural Beauty.

In the mean time, be sure to check out Madge's

Thanks for dropping by...


  1. they sure don't make them like that any more. great shots. i would love one of those. maybe in red or blue. such style. ( :

  2. I love old rusty trucks so much that if I could I'd buy one to put near my shed for decoration. Great shots.

  3. Fascinating old truck photos ~ ^_^ ~ lots of 'tales' if it could talk .

  4. Absolutely you had to turn around and go back for a photos! I'm so glad you did. What a great find.

  5. Seasoned....not those old seasoned pickups! We have plenty around our parts just left in fields. Funny how people do that. You wonder if it ran out of gas, or had some mechanical failure and it just wasn't worth going back for.

  6. This truck is fabulous! I have seen a lot of Internationals too. My dad said they used internationals on their farm to harvest.

  7. what a handsome truck...only us photographers would think a rusty old truck is beautiful!!
