This was taken a few years ago up in O'Donnell TX. It was laid to rest in a interesting lot surround by all kinds of antiques that have been weathered by the elements.

Nice capture.

It's sad to see these machines left to rot like this. The ones that are well maintained and cared for seemingly last forever.

Are you going to make a coffee table book from your images Majestictone? You have some great captures.

In my neck of the woods this would be called "yard art". Some would buy it for hundreds of $$$ then spend more to move it to their farm house...that's because the old tractors their grandfathers used are still operational and run grain augers, hay operations or other supplemental operations.

Seems those old pieces of machinery are more prized than the structures. They are creating "industrial zones" in farming areas and tearing down old barns to make way for new roads and ugly warehouses. This 100+ year old barn is a victim, however they were able to save the large tree since it is over 100 years old. Some folks appealed to the city asking for time to recycle the wood to replace bad boards on their old barn.

Thank You LB... We have one in our barn and it's in somewhat pristine condition and I have posted a couple images on here in the past but this one has some uniqueness to it.

Thank You Very Much Ray.

It's been in the back of my mind to make a such a book and one day it will come to fruition. I totally agree with you on old implements. Texas is littered with 100's of them and make an effort to pull over when traveling to capture them. On our property, we've been thinking of doing the same out front in the middle of our circular driveway.

I see more of that movement towards the east and in the hill country but out here in the west, there isn't much concern for such enjoyment of visual art. All we can do is hold out for some hope that the mindset changes.

Luckiliy we have many of these relics still lost in the "backwoods" just waiting for me to drive by!!!
I have many of these treasures and yes it is sad that they are left to "rot". But better than becoming scrap metal! For us photographers anyway!!
Great composition!
