John Shackleford said his "all time favorite photo" won him a $3 prize at the third annual Hamilton County Fair.
He said it cost $6 to enter the contest, and he never cashed the $3 check. He still has it in a scrapbook.
Mr. Shackleford, who currently drives the Woodmore school route, said of the unique photo, "I made it while on a weekend leave at Ft. Dix Army Base in New Jersey when I was in Photography School.
" I don’t remember what location we were riding to, but it was out in a field."
The picture shows a tree growing between the bumper and the body of an old vehicle,
Mr. Shackleford at one time was a staff photographer for the News-Free Press.
