Two "Old-Timers" & A Man

I have an ole saying about trucks: "They never die. They just keep on trucking on". Well, this is certainly true about the trucks in this posting. For months I'd seen them protectively locked up behind a chain-link fence and I couldn't get a clear shot of them. To add to the problem no one ever seemed to come by and opened the gate, not even to feed the cats that were roaming around.

Finally, (by pure coincidence) one day after a photo shoot I drove by the little shop building and the gate was wide opened! I did a quick U-turn, pulled up to the gate, and found the owner working on an automobile engine. After telling him how much I admired his old trucks and would he mind if I photographed them, he not only gave me permission to do so but he allowed me to get a few shots of him, too. I think you would have to agree that the title of Two "Old-Timers" & A Man is quite appropriate for the photo essay below.

Boshears Skyfest 2011

Last year I missed this unique airshow because I was away on a photographic trip to Florida. Not this time! Thanks to my uncle (he had free tickets) this year I got the opportunity to observe the 19th Annual Boshears Skyfest at Daniel Field in Augusta on October 15th. I didn't get to spend a lot of time at the show because my uncle wanted to get in and out before the big crowds developed. However, I was able to get some wonderful images of vintage and experimental aircraft within that time. Now that I know what to expect I plan on spending a great deal more time in 2012. Hopefully, these "old birds" will still be flying.
