I can faithfully say that I’ve never seen an old vintage red truck that I didn’t like. I don’t think my car can physically drive past an old red truck. Call it an obsession or some thing primal but I just love the look of old red farm trucks, especially found the wild.
It can be a completely restored, freshly waxed, just pulled out of the garage beauty or an aged, weathered and rusty old relic in a field. I just love the look of these vintage old workhorses.
If I had the money, my next prop purchase would be an old red farm truck that I could drive around and place in the country landscapes that surround my area. Forget about the prop guns, skulls, baskets, suitcases etc that I use, I’d be happy to transport them all around in my old red truck.
Of course I know nothing about cars so that might be a problem. Although I do understand that these old cars are much simpler than today’s computer driven vehicles so maybe it wouldn’t be such a problem to maintain it.
Even better would be to meet someone who owns a great old truck and would enjoy driving around the area parking it in the perfect spots for me to photograph. Anyone out there in the Upper Valley who owns a great old vehicle and meets this description? 😉
Photographing Vintage Cars in the Wilds of New England
Meanwhile I’ll just have to keep my eyes peeled and find them “in the wild” as I call it. Not in a car show but out in the open in their natural environments.
Sounds crazy right? Finding a beautiful old vintage car parked in the perfect spot ready to be photographed? Well luck favors the prepared and I’ve been lucky on a number of occasions. Partly because I’m out photographing a lot and partly because there are lot of great old cars still knocking about in New England at least when the weather is good. Something about Yankee thrift I suppose which as kept these old cars in top condition and stored away from the elements.
