Photographer's Note

From the same timber truck tralier as yesterday, a trailer that has done its life of hard work and stands abandoned in an old timber unloading ground.

As you see it was once white, I think, but after a hard life in the salt spray lifted from the raod by 14 big wheels this crossbar at the rear of the trailer has taken another shade of pale. The salt that gave this corrosion was the salt we spread on the roads in winter time to keep water from freezing to ice on the the road surface. This serves two purposes, saving lifes and making it possible for heavy trucks to do their job at all. But there is downsides on the deicing salts, car corrosion is speeded up and the risk of polluting the ground water. The first problem is more or less solved with the anticorrosion systems on new cars today but the second one has just started to show up...

The title was given by the association of salt and lemon to Tequila shots, I guess we have to do with windscreen washer fluid or airbrake antifreeze for alcohol. After all it is Saturday...
