Wreckers from the Past

These old tow trucks sit in a lot slowly rusting away, and after driving by them numerous times I decided to stop and ask to shoot them. The owner said I was not the first one to stop and he gladly agreed to let me snap a shot. The color version was done with my spotlight after it was pretty dark and the other was done with my infrared camera. The color shot took maybe twelve different exposures with the light till I got the whole truck lit.I would rather do 3-10 second exposures than 1-30 second exposure because if I mess up with the light I hate waiting thirty seconds till I see the error. These old classics probably have many stories they could tell of coming to the aid of many a motorist over the years.
