Hey! I just named on Going Nowhere this morning. I got mine in CD where did you get yours? Sorry I took your title but I really did not see yours until just now.

Errick, I like your 'Going Nowhere'. Snow and all! I took mine in Texas after one of our snow storms this year. I don't care about the name thing. I take so many of these old cars and trucks, it's hard to come up with original names. I'm sure there are others with the same title as well. I don't like to label them 'untitled' so gotta think of something!

Thank you Richard, Samantha, Kay, Sharon, Ken, Cary, Jeff and Karen.....Karen, the one that was in the paper was 'Winter is Here'. Our camera club submitted several for the theme 'snow' and the paper printed it. It is similar in that it is an old truck in the snow, however, it is a different truck and another snow storm.

Thanks Carol. I trudged through so much snow, but I had a blast. This was found at an old abandoned shack. There was also an abandoned boat! Didn't shoot the boat, it wasn't very interesting. But I love this truck. I have shot it many times in different weather.
