SS 1/40 @ f.13 ISO 200. I thought the angle and lines of this old truck made it look like it was smiling.

Thank you, Richard. I appreciate your nice comment. The truck has a almost comical look. For some reason, every time I look at it, it makes me smile...another reason for the title.

I recognize this truck Sherry!

It's kind of a friendly "in-your-face" perspective ... :-)

Thanks, Mike. I thought it looked like a face..... The windows look like the eyes; the lines on the hood, its nose; and the grill was a great big smile. Maybe my imagination running unchecked, but it is a fun photo. It also brings back good memories...I was on a photo trip with one of my best friends. So smiles all around! LOL

I have a photo of this guy in my gallery. He was looking a little down and out the day I was visiting, so I dressed him up a little bit ... :-)

Yep, same truck, same cracked windshield and all. And you also got a good shot of the old firetruck. I like the perspective and effects on both your shots. Seems we are prowling around the same parts of N.M.
