Tuesday Photo Challenge: Field

we bought our house in France with two fields attached – about seven acres in total. The first time we saw them, this piece of agricultural ‘kit’ was parked up just inside the gate.

I believe it’s a mobile feed dispenser for sheep (our neighbour, who had a flock of sheep at the time, used the fields for grazing). Sadly, it was gone by the time we completed the purchase.

Perhaps it went to a museum although, given the notable dearth of sentimentality among those who actually have to live off the land, it could just as easily have been converted to firewood.

Farming In Miniature

Some may recall that last October I put up some of my photographs at a local ‘Expo’ of hobbies and ‘passions’. One of the displays was a table-top homage to agriculture – still the main form of activity around here- including these models of agricultural machinery. Whether they are toys for children or adults I leave it to you to decide.

Photography 101: Colo(u)r

This photograph was taken earlier this summer at an exhibition of old agricultural equipment in the nearby village of Lesterps. It shows the engine casing of a very well cared-for old tractor.

I haven’t post-processed the image in any way, apart from a crop for reasons of aesthetic balance. It really is this colo(u)r.
