Diamond in the Rough

A photograph of the front end of a rusty, decaying, antique 1948 Diamond T Model 201 pickup truck, abandoned amidst other autos in a field of grass in Saskatchewan, Canada

A 1948 Diamond T Model 201 pickup truck, splendiferous in its corrosion.

I photographed this in 2007 in a ghost town along the Red Coat Trail in Saskatchewan. The crop is too tight, an unfortunate result of cramped conditions (another decrepit vehicle was located directly behind me) and a wide-angle lens that could, at least in this situation, have benefited from another mm or two. But I’ve always liked it anyway, crop be damned, so here it is.
