A scene captured in Natchez, Mississippi in 2015. I suppose this image can be placed in the category "nothing special", as Gert (Holmertz) often says. It`s just a daily life scene from the small town Natchez in Mississippi. I liked the worn and rusty old impression and details of the backside of this old GMC truck.

Hej Erling,
Idag är vi naboer på sajten. Tack för hälsningen. En gammal rostig amerikansk lastbil är verkligen inget speciellt, men det som gör att bilden passar den fina kategorin är inte bara rosten utan att vi ser en man som sitter bakom ratten och en annan som håller armen utanför rutan. Ingen dramatik, bara en glimt från vardagen. Sånt tycker jag är fint. ;-)

Rusty, Erling but still in riding condition. So well fit to the "Deep-South USA" sceneries - especially when watching movies about there.
Anyway, looking at details, I see a new spare-wheel cover and a partially hidden license plate which can cause trouble for the guy driving...
Have a nice weekend,

Ciao Erling, great view of fascinating old veichle, fine details, excellent clarity and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Erling,

Elle fonctionne encore et solide en plus.J'aime le cadrage serré qui nous montre bien les textures de la rouille sur la peinture anciennement bleue.

Hello Erling,
Great photo of this old and rusty car, every little detail is clearly seen and the warm sunlight is enhancing too. The licence plate is conveniently hidden.

Hello Erling, I was also fascinated by such old cars when I was in the States. Nice view of this rusty car. Is this car still moving? There is someone inside it.
beautiful picture.

Have a nice Sunday

Hello Erling,

A very old pic-up GMC the old cars with a very heavy engines.
An excellent composition lovely presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Hello Erling
If this picture is an example of the daily scene in Natchez than is will be nothing special, but I can’t imagine that the motor-vehicle population in this place is so outdated as you beautiful picture suggest. I hope for the inhabitants of this town the this is a picture in the category “Special”
Have a nice day, Groet Rob

Hi Erling,
interesting capture of this old GMC truck, and your most famous color, blue panties! Great capture, my friend.

Hi Erling
yup, gotta love this!
not only for the parts you mentioned, but also because of the baby blue color, thats cool too. The red tail lights give it a small tiny splash of contrasting color. i like it!

Hello Erling,

good image of this old truck, I like the details of the vehicle we can see, it is an original one, I like it!

Best regards,

Hello dear Erling,
Very nice capture of this oldie from the back. Very nice pictorial geometry and light management.
TFS and best regards

Hello, Erling!

The old aspect of this car makes it a very interesting subject for the photo! The details were captured with very good light and sharpness! Beautiful old model (although it needs a new painting) and a very nice composition! Excellent job!

Olá, Erling!

Aqui, por conta da luz e da nitidez que estão muito boas, também podemos ver o que o tempo fez com esse carrro! O azul ficou interessante, assim como os detalhes da ferrugem.
Bom trabalho!

Hi Erling,
Build for life, full of rust and still running. Nothing special but good for daily life.
Well done!
