While shooting art for an article about bee research, there appeared this gem, tucked away in a tangle of giant ragweeds, passion vines, morning glories and johnson grass, on an old farm road in Lonoke County, Arkansas.

Faded red truck.
Faded, but still beautiful. This Mack truck is being reclaimed by nature.

  1. So you speak Mack. What a gem this history piece shares to those of us who grew up in the trucking industry. I too live rurally/urbanly. and find the gems around us to be very photogenic. Keep them coming.

    1. Thanks! This was one of two Macks in the wilds there. The farmer who owned the property has told our researchers that he eventually wants to restore them. He’s got a lot of work to do! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by our neck of the woods!
