A Pick-Up Truck Bed Filled with Legs on a Snowy Highway

Guest blogger again today.  The blog has been a family effort as of late.  I’ve been out here for ten days and going back home New Year’s Day.

Today”s guest blogger is none other than my nine year old granddaughter Anna who shot this scene with her mom’s cell phone from a moving car.

She saw this pick-up truck on the way to swim practice.  What I love is that she saw it, got her mom’s camera on the phone going and captured the shot and THEN she texted it to me saying “I just blogged for you”.  People write to me and tell me they see something and think, ahh Ruth would photograph this.  People have called or emailed suggestions of things to consider photographing for the blog. If I had seen this truck filled with a pile of fake legs in the back

And then there are these moments of serendipity.

I asked her where she thought the truck was going

Her reply   “Probably a dummy store.”    

Anna has shown me photos before to be on the blog but I said We’ll know when it is right!   Today it is perfect.

  3. Anna: Your photo made me laugh out loud! What a great way to start my day! I’ll be watching for your posts in the future!

  4. The “leg up on Grandma” made me laugh as much as the crazy photo. Anna, you have a great eye for funny photos!

  5. That is super-cool. When I saw the pic, I first thought, “Ruth always sees the coolest things.” Then I found out the pic was taken by your granddaughter. Even more special. Happy New Year!

  6. I love that you feature “guest bloggers” in your space from time to time, and that your family is eager to play along. Miss Anna is a lightening-fast thinker!

  7. Hilarious! I once saw two giraffes sticking out of a truck in Twin Falls, Idaho…yes, they were alive. It was so great and I’ve never forgotten – I was like 10. I so wish I had a photo!
