Vintage Fire Truck

CLICK TO ENLARGE!!!

I love old vintage things. Especially firetrucks. This ladder truck was sitting out in the middle of a field in rural Morganton, NC. It reminds me of when I was little and I would get so excited to hear the sirens, not realizing that it usually meant a disaster was occurring. I think most children are oblivious and just like the flashing lights. I know my children always loved to see woo-woo's emergency vehicles flying down the road, and so do my grandchildren. Now I say a prayer for the personnel and victims when I hear a siren. 

I've a busy weekend coming up attending a writing workshop so I will be gone, gone, gone. I'll hop around and see your beautiful photos and respond to comments next week. Sorry!

Have a great weekend, Y'all!

  2. Great shot. I love vintage things also. I discovered an old white sewing machine and table. After fixing it up it is my new favorite piece of furniture.

    I want to thank you for for you kind comments. I am so glad that you are getting something from my posts. Things have been very crazy for me lately and I have been trying my best to keep up on things. I am glad that you are trying new things with your camera, you made my day!

    1. Andrea, Thanks so much! You are a veritable fount of information and technique. I love how you theme everything and it encourages me to get out there and look through my lens again. I found an old sewing table but all I did was clean the dirt off. Maybe I should paint it?

    1. Linda, It would be wonderful in a parade! I don't know if they ever do things like that with it or not but it looks to be in working condition.

    1. That's cool, Lisa! What a fun hobby. I wanted to climb on this one but my boys kept telling me I would get in trouble and they didn't want to bail me out of jail ;)
