The Rocking Truck Driver ♫

The Rocking Truck Driver ♫

This is Gert. He is a truck driver and lives in Skogås. I asked him if he knew Johnny, (the most famous blogger from Skogås), and he said he had heard about him. Gert can drive almost any truck there is. Together with two friends he takes different types of truck driving jobs. At the moment he is working for SRV. That's the local recycling company, and when I met him today he was driving one of their trucks. As you can see on his shirt, Gert a big AIK fan, just like Barbie that I met last year. Gert is also into music. The band is called Farbror Gert, (Uncle Gert), and they have a MySpace site if you wanna have a listen to some Swedish rock music. Or have a look at a youtube video.

Cool snubbe! Lite synd på det hårda ljuset bara, men ibland är det inte mycket att göra åt.

Solen sken för en gångs skull och då får man vara glad för det Stefan.

Love this portrait, Steffe. A truckie and a musician - sounds a great mix.

I like the way you find out about your subjects. Very cool that he heard about his home town blogger.
I adored the color houses - they looks so bright and cozy - and the most memorable picture with the yellow mansion with a treelined driveway.

Gert looks so sharp in his picture! Just by looking at the picture, I can tell that he's a real rocker! Aside from driving trucks and loving music, he must be into choppers too, I’m guessing. I totally salute truck drivers for their unique set of skills. They have this sense of responsibility that you'll truly admire from taking care of their trucks to making sure they deliver their goods on time.
