Christmas to remember, 2006

This truck was  sitting in a yard off of highway 19, in 2006. I was driving to visit my daughter’s family in Rush Hill ,Missouri,which is located near Mexico, Missouri. I started from my home in Eureka, Missouri.

Highway 19 is highlighted in yellow, on this detail from a Missouri highway map. The structures, that this image is based on, was seen along highway 19 between Montgomery City and Martinsburg. My destination was Mexico,Missouri,where my daughter Christy,my granddaughters Delanie and Claire and my son-in-law Mike live. I started out from my home in Eureka, Missouri.

BP pit stop

I took this while driving on Missouri highway 70 about four years ago and since then the BP station has burnt down. This image reminds of a stock car race with some of the cars taking a pit stop. I have simplified the shapes and enhanced this photo with a photoshop paint brush.
