Old farm truck

Today’s picture is much closer to home. It was shot about 9 months ago at a car show, and I was never happy with how I processed it.

While I would love to shoot this again without all the other cars and people in the background, I am much more happy with this version.

Whenever I look at an old car like this, I wonder where it came from, what sort of life did it live, and what stores can it tell?

On time

 

Road stripper

To my utter surprise, the re-tarring of Main Road is complete, and on time as well! Considering that the section between Muizenberg and Kalk Bay is about 2 years behind schedule, I never thought that they would manage to complete the section in Lakeside in the promised two weeks, but somehow they did. Well done to the contractors.

For my last post, I posted the other end of this strange-looking machine, well here is (I think) the front, or possibly the back. It is a little difficult to tell. But what seems to happen is that it drives over the tar and rips it up, and then convey’s it along the conveyor belt at the back to drop into a nearby truck.

It’s a little scary seeing these guys in action, and to think about a machine that is powerful enough to just rip apart a road like a piece of jelly, but that is basically what this guy does. A great deal of respect please.
