Treasures in the Country

You just never know what you might run across when driving down old rural roads.  I spotted this gem on our way to a winery and knew I would be u turning just as soon as I dropped Ryann off.
I wasn’t wearing snake boots and didn’t feel like chancing it.  I walked up and down the drive way a few times trying to find a composition I liked.  This was my favorite vantage point.  Any higher and you could see houses in the background.  I really wanted to keep the cactus in the shot, but shooting with more of a side car view just didn’t work for me.

It is a shame that antiques like this are left to weather, but the rusted body does give the subject so much more personality.
