Abandoned

 
Posted by Picasa


This equipment has been sitting in this vacant lot for months. I'm not sure when it was used last.

Not abandoned. Left to rust artistically.

It's interesting isn't it. I always wonder about the stories behind items like this.

Maybe last spring?

Swords into plowshares?

I took a picture of something just like that yesterday. :) Mine was a side view. -Great minds. :)

The first one closest to you is a two 14 inch bottom plow pulled by a small tractor or a team of horses.

The thing behind it is a harrow. It was pulled over the ground that was plowed and broke up the larger clods of dirt.

Not much of this is still used unless it is on a small farm somewhere.

Looks like it's been awhile at least!

I have one just like it in my yard. I used it last March.

VP said...

Quite strange: it look abandoned in the midst of a work.

Looks like the bones of some prehistoric monster or machine.

It's a pity, I think they gave up to work in this beautiful land.

I like Julie's idea of it not being abandoned - just left to rust artistically!

hmmm....
«Louis's» knees feel as rusty as the harrow looks!

(Editor to «Louis»: Why don't you try some WD40 on your knees?

Very nicely done, Lois. I especially like the light!

I've often thought how profligate it is to leave machinery out in the elements to rust away...and it's often done by public entities which means that's our money rusting out there!

Tricia said...

a familiar site around here too!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Is that a tract plough? Great for collection. Nice shot Lois.

Some metal left by alien spaceship. :)
Yes, love the lighting.

It looks like an old plough.

Hilda said...

Oy, that's scrap metal. Such a waste when they're not recycled.

The Tufted Titmouse is supposed to be a non-migratory bird but I guess they don't leave from where they are at. Florida birds stay there and Ohio birds stay here. Interesting.

Steffe said...

I see this sort of thing all the time in my area. Lazy farmers!

Tash said...

No more plowing...it's resting. Lovely photo.

That is strange. Looks like it is going to rust away.
