An Old Favorite

I recently borrowed a film scanner from my good friend Tom, and have been scanning some older negatives.
I love these old shots, they mean a lot to me.
When I still lived at home but had started working in the Falls, I would drive by this truck every day. This is about the time I started getting into photography. So I ask the farmer one day if I can take a picture of his truck in the field. He gives me this look like "what would you want a picture of that for ??" I love that look :)  It would be the first of many seen since then. He agree's and I proceed into the field to get my image. I was probably in the field for 15-20 minutes, all the time concentrating on the composition of this truck. When I was finished I turned around to exit the field and was surrounded by cattle that had slowly crept up on me with curiosity. There they stood staring. it was like they were saying  "what would you want a picture of that for ??"
