Old Fords

Ford Truck Collection

Panhandle Florida

If you’re heading south of Tallahassee, Florida on Highway 319, you’ll see a spectacular collection of old Ford trucks. Arranged in chronological order, dating from the early 1900s to the mid 1970s.

The trucks, placed here by Pat Harvey, have all been used on the Harvey family farm. Some were used by his grandfather and some by his father. All were left in the woods to rust when their time had passed.

The question I asked myself; ”How to shoot a close look at an individual truck while showing the place?”

It was the placement of the trucks that I visualized.

The placements of these rusting Fords make them a unique subject.  I love trucks so naturally I loved this place.   I did a fast overview stop in the evening when the light was wrong.  It gave me a chance to sleep on how to tell the story of many old Fords in a field.

It was a bright Florida morning when I went back. The trucks were looking into the sun.  I did 5 shots to blend into an HDR.
