Paging Carl Switzer: An Idea that Failed

I thought I'd share this failed shot as an example of an idea that didn't work out. There was nothing particularly interesting about the truck hauling scrap metal, but I suddenly got an idea for a title, Paging Carl Switzer, alluding to the one bit of metal sticking up in the middle in a manner similar to Alfalfa's famous cowlick.

Unfortunately, I was never able to get in a position to get a usable shot. This desperation snap was all that I managed to get. It is boring. It is useless. I take hundreds upon hundreds of such photos.
