  2. Found you through Chase Jarvis. Love your work! The portraits are fantastic!

  3. Me too via Chase J. (the Chaser of talents). Great eyes on people, control of light! black and white so contrasty we can imagine how the sun shines on the trucks. I can feel your respect towards the subject.... these street portraits just put the light where it ought to be, people earning their life honestly, sacrificing so many conforts. It really seems they love their job. Your talented eyes, brain and heart have put this together in one nice and straight piece of art, in a no-frills environment. Cheers Australia, land of great people, not only a great land :-) All the best- john from Italy

  4. Determine how much you want to spend, which will narrow down how many different models you need to analyze.

  5. Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
    You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.

  6. Nice I want to be part of them because I want to work also in Australia as a truck driver. I already found this driver tipper truck dog jobs in Melbourne and I think this is the best opportunity to work in that country.

  7. It is actually a great and useful piece of information. I am glad that you shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  27. Every driver, regardless of age, driving skills and country of residence must have a set of documents to get a rental car. Read this information carefully so that you do not have any problems during the car rental procedure. In order for you to use a car hire service, you first need to have a passport or one of the other documents that certify your identity. This is necessary to draw up a lease agreement and insurance for the driver and passengers in USA. Note:
    under 21 Car rental
    Your document may be an international passport or travel document. To rent a car abroad, your document should not be expired and damaged. In the passport you must have your photo;
    If you are less than 21 years old, you must have a driving experience of at least 1 year. Please note that there should be no car accidents and other incidents in your driving skill history. You must have a driver's license of international format (this is a plastic card);
    Drivers under the age of 21 have a limited number of USA car rental categories: CCAR, CFAR, ECAR, FCAR, ICAR, IFAR, ILAE, ISAR, MBAR, MVAR, SCAR, SSAR.

  28. How old do you have to be to rent a car in the USA?
    Basically, the U.S. age policy suggests that the driver’s minimum car rental age is 21 years old. Enterprise, Advantage, Sixt, Avis, Europcar, Budget, National and many other providers are authorized to rent cars for users who are 21-24 years of age and even younger.

    However, each rule has exceptions, and the pleasant news is that car rental under age 21 is at the disposal of youngsters. As stated by the age limits of Dollar, Hertz, and Thrifty, the driver’s minimum age is 20 years old in order to pick up a car - this applies to most destinations in the United States.

    What about those who are under 20 years old? In most cases, young 18-19-year old travelers are banned from picking up a car on the United States territory. As an exception, the New York (NY) and Michigan (MI) States legislatures allow people under the age of 18 to drive rental transport.

    Also, special age conditions are enjoyed by military and official government employees for work needs. Those who fall under the action of government / military car rental under 21 rules can pick up a car starting at the age of 18 at any location in the USA and at special discount rates. See more here: car rental 20 years old .

  29. The picture isn’t as bleak as it was years ago, when many of the big companies didn’t allow any car rental under 25 years of age. Drivers ages 21 to 24 can now rent at most locations operated by Advantage, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, National, and Sixt. The minimum age to rent a car at Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty is 20 years old at most locations. See more here: 18 years old car rental .

  30. IIf you are thinking about how to save some money, select the pick-up time alike drop-off time. Every car rental service takes money for a full day of rental, so when you take a vehicle for 25 hours, you have to pay for 48 hours (2 full days) of rental, and 74 hours will cost you as 96 hours (4 full days)..
