Body Parts. Two Red Trucks In A Field. U.S. Highway 136, Missouri.

I didn't visit Missouri as such, more flirted with its borders! I had driven down through Iowa and was making for Lincoln, IL. On Lincoln's birthday, I seem to remember. Probably the reason I decided to drive so far in one day - I knew I wanted to stay in Lincoln or Springfield which I think is Lincoln's birth place. Anyhow, it was late afternoon as I stumbled into Missouri when I saw this truck grave yard by the side of the highway - the sun was out and up and so I spent about 40 minutes shooting them. It was largely fire trucks and the like. I have spent hours with Google's street view trying to track this place down, but, all I can tell you with any certainty is that it is on U.S. Highway 136 in the north of Missouri. I feel worthless, I have failed! There is only one thing for it, I shall have to return!

Candy, such a joy to me
inner city lights, I cannot sleep
oh candy, sweetest remedy
only you can ease my troubled dreams
angel, all people are the same
caught up in bitterness and blame
oh candy, on dark and lonely days
I hear your voice whispering my name

don't you know its alright to be alone
you can make it on your own
don't you know it's alright to be alone
you can make it on your own
