I was being watched (again)

1947 KB6 International fire truck at Parkin, Arkansas

"OLE MOTHER," a.k.a. Unit 1 of the Parkin, Arkansas Fire Department, a 1947 International Harvester KB6 Fire Truck.The truck is in operable condition despite its age. When it operates these days, it is part of a parade, not a fire fighting mission.

This week, we are sending you back in time to May 31, 2010, when I stumbled across this fine old fire truck at Parkin, Arkansas. Getting the shot was part of a two day trek during which I was under surveillance from the denizens of the areas where I was shooting.

In one case, the local police followed me out of town. Click here to see the original post including more of the old fire truck, a long since abandoned old hangar, an old service station converted to a museum, and a couple of tall buildings shimmering in light after a rain storm.

See where the story started on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot com where you can see a nice side view of the old truck, a peek inside the cab, a the ancient “Triple-Diamond” International Harvester Truck logo.
