semi in the suburbs




























though I have driven down this road hundreds of times, sadly, I can not tell you the name of it. I can tell you the direction the truck is driving towards is the northern end of the bethpage state parkway. if he were going the other way, he'd be headed towards the bethpage golf course. as I was turning on to this road I saw this truck ahead of me & hoped I'd get a picture while waiting at the stop sign. I was lucky, I got just one shot.

You didn't just get a shot, but a terrificly composed photo. I like the overall scenery - gives a good feel of the place & the girl on the truck is such a odd contrast. Well spotted.

I love the name, Semi in the Suburbs. It's a great shot too. Those white lines are fantastic.

The shot is so beautiful — a big truck, blank road, great sight with trees.

I zoomed the photograph and found it way more interesting as you said.

The photo was taken incredibly. The picture with the truck with it looked well balanced. Aside from the beautiful scenery, the truck also contributed of bringing life to the picture.

Funny billboard on the truck. I haven't Sealy using that particular advertisement, but looks like it would attract some male interest!

It looks so much better in larger view. I don´t know if it´s a gil actually, she could be older than just a girl judging by the hair.
