David Branch: 1940 Ford Wrecker. Presidio, Texas

from David Branch in West Texas:
"I was driving through Presidio yesterday, early in the morning. This truck has been there imprisoned in this heap of stuff for years. The light was terribly washed out as the sun was rising directly behind the place and the carport was still in deep shadow. An interesting truck but kinda crappy photos. It would be nice to go back in the evening when the light was coming in from the other side. Not sure when that may be. I'd like to go on a old truck shoot from Redford to Candelaria."--DB
