Newspaper Wanted

In my part of the world some of the farmers collect newspapers after people are done with them and then shred them for bedding for their animals. 

Sometimes they have some very interesting collections bins at the end of their lane for the newspaper to be deposited into.



 What better use for an old Chevy pickup bed.

 look at all that chippy paint and rust.

 and what's this decoration...could that be a sunflower?

 isn't it purty?

and look at all the lichen for extra measure.

Now I've seen some funky stuff in my day, but this takes the cake. This Chevy pickup box has been weathered to perfection! I'm still laughing. Thanks Felicia for stopping by and I hope to see you again.

Great photo; very unique!
Very beautiful sighting!
The green is fantastic to look at.
In some sense, paper is still a great medium you know - for writing letters, drawing, journaling, etc? :)
I can totally associate with the "Paper Wanted".

Welcome back, Felicia.
Glad you are back sharing your beautiful art with all of us.
Have a Happy Week ahead!
Peace :)

Rust always adds a different dimension o a photo and photograph well. I save newspapers for Goodwill, but do not have such a lovely container! Paper bags suffice.
