I met Terry recently on a friends farm . He was there to fix an ailing forklift. I asked if I could take some photos of him. He said that he didn't care ,but he was concerned that his shirt was too dirty for a photo. I told him that it didn't matter and after all.......who would trust a mechanic with a clean shirt at the end of a long work day! He laughed and said take all the photos that you want . I took several photos of Terry. This one is my favorite.
