On my return from New Mexico, I always like to take the back roads rather than Interstate highways. I have crossed the Texas panhandle more times than I can remember, both on paved and dirt roads, and am always looking for something new along the route. This time I was cruising down a 2-lane paved Texas county road in our Jeep Wrangler JL and saw this old truck and grain silo behind a farmhouse. I drove the Wrangler back behind the abandoned house so that I could easily unload my Toyo View VX-125 film camera and capture this photo on Ilford Delta Pro 100 black and white film with my favorite large-format lens, a Nikon-W 210mm F5.6. I love how this photo turned out and it is my favorite from the trip.
