...more from our favorite Arizona old truck yard.

This is a great shot, hon! I like the composition very much. The diagonal line of the orange cabs, the way the pale colors are arranged across the image ... the whole thing works wonderfully! The pov you chose makes it look like the property is a gnarled mess of random machinery, when it's actually pretty well organized! Good job on this one! :)
Yeah it's a jumble alright, but a wonderful mess of old trucks and their ornery "mutt" presence. Like those old trusty mutt-dogs who are so beaten up and loyal, they look like they'll last forever. I like your angle---looking up to a 'mound' of trucks; and putting those wonderfully rusted beasts near the front, so the other brighter ones stand out. Nice angles too, and I like how it's all couched in that full greenery as if it's living out its eternity in a plush truck-paradise. These old beasts have a dignity like the old barns that Lynell shoots, or old train cars. (Chicago has vast trainyards---which you photographed from rooftops---with lots of abandoned traincars; and I swear, one of these days I'll go to one and take pictures.) This has that feel to it, or like we're looking at a "truck river" where the trucks are flowing to the left...Very enticing, and poetic too. Glad that you chose to share it (as opposed to thinking, "too ugly". It's beautiful.) (Here's an etymology I know: "Mutt" comes from the old insult, "muttonhead," which meant a person with mutton in their brains, obviously. So a "mutt" was considered a dumb, rather clumsy dog. But such dogs could be so caring, and so reliable: I assume these trucks were once 'mutts' for their owners, so that the owners had remorse when they dropped them here for good, like leaving your trusty mutt with the vet for good...)
