Week 6 – #40 Rusty


When our old washer and dryer started to fail, a friend kindly offered to take them off of our hands. He arrived in his truck behind which he was pulling a rickety, old and rusty trailer. I was immediately transfixed by the beautiful colors in the metal above the wheel wells, and started “itching” to dash inside and grab my camera. As soon as everyone was safely indoors, I quietly slipped inside the house for my camera to photograph something aged but lovely. Getting this shot involved balancing precariously on the edge of the trailer and leaning way out. After I got it, I noticed the friend of a neighbor peering at me strangely from the road. I waved merrily and continued on without explaining the crazy thing I was doing. When I later explained to my friend and family what I had been up to outside, I am not sure that the non-photographers in the group really “got it”. But, hey, that’s OK too!rusty trailer
