Nashville, TN

This is the 10th "O" for the "Os in October. Join in!".
Distribution for Marathon Oil not too far from here.

Dust and Diesel

"Battered buses jammed up to the roof
Dust and diesel the prevailing themes
Farmer sleeping on the truck in front,
Feet trailing over like he's trolling for dreams.
Smiling girl directing traffic flow
.45 strapped over cotton print dress.
Marimba-brown and graceful limbs
Give me a moment of loneliness
Dust and diesel
Rise like incense from the road --
Smoke of offering" -Bruce Cockburn

Also seen from another perspective for "Outlet"...

The storage of such. I'm in Houston this weekend and will be seeing a lot of these. :)

Nice crispness, lots of detail, a lonely aspect with criss-cross shadows and oversized towering forms -- like the hub of nowhere.

Cool shot in IR, great processing work too. There is an ominous feeling to this scene.
