Crazy Truck

in Black And White2 months ago (edited)

It's a short story. It was in the summer of 2007 on the M5 Ural highway, Russia. I was riding as a passenger in the back seat, drinking beer and admiring the passing scenery. At some point, a truck loaded with logs appeared on the oncoming lane. I don't remember how I managed to take a picture of this truck — apparently, in addition to beer, a camera also miraculously turned out to be in my hands. It was very fast. Of course, the picture turned out to be blurry but I like the result. Down there, in the reflection, you can see the bottles of beer that haven't been opened yet.

Это короткая история. Дело было летом 2007-го на трассе М5 «Урал». Я ехал пассажиром на заднем сиденье, попивал пиво и любовался пролетающими пейзжами. В какой-то момент навстречу нам пролетел грузовик, гружёный лесом. Я не помню, каким образом я успел сфотографировать этот грузовик — судя по всему, в моих руках кроме пива каким-то чудом оказался ещё и фотоаппарат. Всё это было неожиданно и очень быстро. Разумеется, картинка получилась смазанной, но мне нравится результат. Там внизу, в отражении, видны ещё не открытые бутылки «Стелла Артуа».

Southern Ural, Russia.
June, 2007.

Hello @alexanderfluke and thank you very much for your #monomad participation.
Please read our community rules, specially the #1
We do not curate single image publications. Actually we already talked about this issue before.
There are other communities where you can post "lighter" effort publications if you wish, like the picture a day one for example 🙂

Yes, I remember that but thanks again for the reminder. 😊 The #monomad tag was set out of habit, has already been deleted.... Or, in your community, do you not recommend publishing posts with one picture at all?

It's not about the tag, it's about posting single image publications in our community 🙂

Okay, I got it.

Unfortunately, I can't add any more pictures to this post, it's completely finished (and it wasn't a light effort, it took me one hour just to create the best image of this photo). I won't be outraged if my post is muted in the community. 🙂

We only mute scammers, shitposters and toxic people.
As far as we know you do not belong to any of those categories 🙂

Фу, противно...
Хотела как лучше, а получилось(((
Вы простите меня, Александр...
Но лучше, и правда не трогать тему Хайва в том гадюшнике...
Больше не буду, вот после этого:


Всё это было предсказуемо. Жаль, что вы поняли это не сразу.

Никогда не сталкивался ни с кем из русских сообществ на steem, да и на голосе меня никогда не было. Так что откуда я там в комментариях, среди всех этих прекрасных людей, да ещё и в таких эпитетах, сказать сложно. Одним словом, бред.

Ну и ладненько)))
Опыт получили, посмеялись и забыли...
