Spotted this old (maybe circa early '50's?) Chevy truck advertising an upholstery shop. The yellow color is bright enough to grab attention, but upon closer view, there were some great shots of this relic (even with rusty spots and shattered glass) - great character. Too bad they had to paint the commercial lettering on the side, but the reflected palms on the hood add a nice natural diversion.

Distractions can be interesting side trips in life's adventures...though they are often considered negative intrusions to accomplishing goals. So, do you surrender to those tempting digressions that divert you from your 'to do' list, but may offer unique and rewarding experiences...or do you stay the course and focus in on your target? ;) 1st Ave S & 8th St, Naples, FL


  1. Interesting how old becomes special when it comes to objects. They increase in value. But old when it comes to people is not seen the same way in our culture.

  2. Great color! Love the "school bus yellow" on this truck! Looks a lot like an old truck my husband used to own, except it was bright orange! :)

  3. I agree with Susan, 100 %. I love the composition of this photo. The colour is great and yes the yellow is definitely school bus yellow. Distractions aren't always good for us but I LOVE them myself.
