Embossed Truck


One day, driving down a local highway, I got stuck behind this truck cab. I couldn't see around it, over it, underneath it. It seemed inordinately large.

When we pulled up to a stop light, I got a closer look and was struck by the sense of power it exuded. So, I decided to play with the photo a bit and ultimately ended up using a Photoshop Action to give it an embossed look; which was perfect.

The final effect was one of power and strength and you knew this was not a truck you wanted to mess with.

No wonder they can pull such big loads!

That is a very intimidating looking vehicle. I think I would have pulled over and let it get way ahead of me.

Embossed seems the perfect description for this one :)

It looks like a big safe with that secured handle there. That could be a security camera in the upper right hand corner. Maybe they're headed to the border under orangeman's orde. :)

It's a monster with or without the Photoshop.

What a large, powerful semi-tractor. Sometimes it is hard to share the road with such behemoths. At least it wasn't pulling a forty foot trailer.
