I totally had that truck when I was a kid. There was a plastic lion that went on the turntable in the bed and would "pace around" as the truck rolled. I think there was a cap that clipped onto the back, too.

This is one of the best contest ideas I've seen in a while.

So many good pictures, so much beautiful ugliness.

Farktography is a keeper!

This is the bus owned by the Branch Davidians, it is still on the grounds of Mt. Carmel outside of Waco.

Yes, it's quite scary

Here is a story of my visit to Mt. Carmel

I need to find it again, but I have a picture of the stairs in the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum. I remember how surprised I was that marble stairs had worn down over time, so that where people were most likely to step (one side going up, the other down) the stair tops had partially worn away. Marble, worn away by shoes. It blew me away. Now to try and find that pic...

The spooky sky is a result of filter multiplication with no selective filter application, as per the rules - honest!!!

This is an abandoned structure on Route 90 in southern Texas, along the way to the Big Bend National Park, if it matters.

Some amazing photos. I am impressed that there are this many good photographers on a non photographer website.

User Not Found,
I am also curious about the bridge in MO? I was wondering if it was Lambert Bridge in Leb. MO?

2005-06-03 08:34:13 AM  
what - no photos of aging rock stars ;-)
Michael Jackson (not that people here would have taken photos of him) would be a prime candidate for this heading.

Nice job peep-holes.

I will update the Farktography site tonight with the listing of the winner, and probably make some clarifications in the rules.

Looking forward to next week's contest, which, by the way, all upcoming contests will be on Wednesday and not Thursday. The Farktography site will reflect that once I have a chance to update the site.

I work in a converted wool mill. There are bits of the original equipment still in place here & there.
