Photographer's Note

On the Bells Line of Road, near Bilpin, in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. The exact location is actually Kurrajong Heights.

This was taken 25 years ago, when I was living in Australia. We were returning home to Newcastle from a few days in the Blue Mountains, when I saw the rusting remains of this old truck and thought that it might make a decent snap. Today, preparing to upload this image, I went for a virtual drive with the Little Yellow Man on Google Maps along Bells Line of Road, and - yes, you've guessed it - found the very same truck still rusting quietly away. It seemed to be in a slightly different place, away from trees, but undoubtedly the same vehicle. If you care to check out the Map View in the Photo Information box, and take the Little Yellow Man down onto the location, you will see my old lorry... Weird it's still there, and weirder still that I remembered where it was!

For Craig, who likes his wrecks!
