Funfriday. TruckFriday. My entry for truck Friday is an ‘aerial’ capture of just some of the hundreds of trucks that took part in the annual ‘Special Rigs for Special Kids’ run, held in Dunedin, New Zealand, taken as I was raised in a cage attached to a crane.

I was the "official" photographer for the charity. The run starts and ends at the same point, a large stadium, where other activities are held, the special needs children and their family's are feed, play games and are entertained. Dunedin Crane Hire brought their crane down to the stadium, because it was just too big to go in the run, I was hoisted up in a crane cage to take captures. All the captures I took of the run, at points along the way that I had scouted previously, and the start and end were donated to the charity for their archives and website.

Thanks Joan. I have seen documentaries of the trucks on the ferries so I can understand what you mean; one day I might even see it first hand.
