Today is Saturday, July 11th, 2009. Today’s theme for Truck Week, of the 2009 Challenge is TRUCK STOP.

This one is less about the individual truck, and more about a prevalent destination in the life of truck-based transportation of goods. This may be more an American icon, but I’m sure all the rest of you can come up with something. Wikipedia has a nice article on the Truck Stop. Here’s a common truck stop company, Flying J.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
