“It will grow on you,” describes the growing appreciation for something that comes about through regular interaction with that entity over time. Books and music ‘grow on us.’ Styles come and go, and, they grow upon us – we acclimate to them. Friendships, perhaps even relationships subtly grow on us without our knowing it – we realize their entity at a certain point, perhaps in their first absence. Gathering museum machinery images associated with the Alaska Highway construction has had several images grow on me, me seeing and appreciating more of what they are about over time. This equipment has been kept up, maintained in working order over two or perhaps three generations. Function, style, colour and form have each been preserved. That’s something that someone has had a hand in doing, perhaps many hands have shared in doing.

Listening to – Nick Drake’s ‘Pink Moon’ and Tyler Bates’ rendering of ‘Ventura.’

Quote to Inspire – “I think good dreaming is what leads to good photographs.” – Wayne Miller

    And all the hands did a good job. What wonderful vehicles, and great photography!

    1. Hello, hello, Angeline …

      There are indeed some skilled hands that have been at work with this equipment at the Alaska Highway Construction Museum in and around Sangudo.

      Thank you for your kind words and for looking in … 😉

    Love these. I’m probably just as old, and not half as beautiful…

    1. Hey there, Kiwiskan …

      You too? I’m having those occasional glimpses that add/highlight my point along Life’s path.

      Take care … 😉
