Though I’m a lifelong Hoosier and have lived in Indianapolis for 16 years, I’ve been to the Indiana State Fair exactly twice. I always figured the fair was mostly about the midway, and rides just aren’t my thing. But I’m always looking for fun things for my sons and I to do, so we made our first fair trip a couple years ago. I took them last year, too, for a little fun before school started again.
Turns out I like to eat fair food and see the animals and the vintage farm equipment. I had a lot of fun photographing the old tractors and trucks. While I love classic cars and can tell you the year, make, and model of almost any car made after World War II through about 1980, I can’t do the same for trucks. Their styling didn’t change enough from year to year. So I have no idea how old this old International farm truck is. But I liked its lines enough to move in close with my camera.
I can just imagine this truck, which looks like it still works for a living, driving down the perfect gravel road I photographed a few years ago.
