Nice series Walter. The pine tree in photo #5 was a surprise. I spent a year at AF plant 42 with Convair and don't remember pine that close by. Many Joshua Trees though. I feel that there might be some antique car nuts drooling over the truck.

Nice but sad! All the machinery went to waste. Our farming communities are shrinking fast. Small farms just can't complete with the big guys. The land may worth something if it is in California. Anyway, your pictures really tell a story about losing a way of life. Thank you for sharing them!

Excellent pictures, Walter. Very sharp lens, the new EF 40mm (?), the Company's gift to the world

No, Torgny, I was using the Canon 24-70 2.8L on the 5D Mark II. I have heard, tho, that the 40mm was quite a bargain.
