Back in 2013, when I was driving trucks and writing about them on a freelance basis, I’d sometimes take pictures too. I visited Wm Mitchell of Muirkirk to get the story of the company’s immaculate Volvo F7. The photoshoot went well, and I remember being happy with the results. It took a while before they were needed, and during that period, I lost them. I searched all over the place for the pictures but they were nowhere to be found. This was really annoying, but I assumed I had deleted them from the memory card without saving them first.
Until today, when to my amazement I found the folder of photos hiding in a subfolder on an external hard drive I used for backup. How they ended up there is beyond me, but the good news is they can now be used in the “Retro Truck” section of an upcoming T&D. In the meantime, here is a preview of the pictures. Better go and save these on the server so they don’t disappear for another six years!
