I was just contemplating what my next blog post would be about, when a new email arrived in my inbox, announcing that a blogger I follow had posted something new.
Hugh has announced a new photography challenge. Now this was attractive to me for two reasons – I like photography, and I like a challenge! The topic is “Rust”, and I found a suitable photo to post ….
I took the photo on the island of Lefkas, Greece, in a village called Vliho. I have been here several times when we have sailed in this area and always make a habit of going to see if the truck is still there. I asked a Greek guy in a nearby taverna about it. Apparently it is a 1945 Mercedes truck, and …. wait for it…..it still goes! I find this hard to believe, as it has grass growing up inside the chassis, and it appears to be stuck in a tiny field surrounded by a locked chain link fence. But you know Greeks, they never throw anything away! I like to think the truck is resurrected once a year, to help with transporting olives after the harvest. Who knows?
Do you want to join in the challenge?
Go to Hugh’s page and follow the instructions. I look forward to seeing your photos.
