I’ve Seen Better Days…

Hustling down through the forest looking for a bald eagle picture opportunity on the Skagit River in upper Washington state, my head spun around as this old 1941 Studebaker truck called out to me.

Being an eye doctor, my first impression was, "Oh, he's blind." Both headlights were busted out, with the wires hanging limp out of the "sockets." There he stood draped with a mantle of moss, which comes only from years of being a part of the forest.

I willingly acknowledged his presence and captured his soul with my camera, and now share his spirit with the world. As I walked off down the leaf-covered lane, was it only the wind, or did he whisper, "Thanks"?
