Who would have thought when this machine was in use that it would end up as an ornament. It looks great on the lawn.

Tom said...

What a great use for this old machine..... I see stuff like this rotting in hedgerows and would love to be able to rescue them...

BJ Roan said...

In sepia, this shot has the feel of traveling back in time.

B SQUARED said...

I bet it helped feed a lot of people.

PERBS said...

Neat antique but I would not have wanted to sit on it with a horse pulling me.

Jenn Jilks said...

Wonderful shots, as always!

Small City Scenes said...

And now it should have flowers spilling out the hopper. Very nostalgic scene. MB

Lorac said...

Nice! It looks rather forlorn!

kaye said...

It looks good, I love old farm tools in sepia

Jacob said...

I've always like old farm stuff as lawn ornaments. We had a old wagon wheel - authentic - that we got at an Indian reservation in Arizona.

Hmmm. Wonder what happened to that?

I'll be some Amish still use this contraption...

George said...

Antique farm equipment is perfect for sepia -- and for lawn ornaments!

Isn't it great how we can recycle and also remember? I'll be waiting for some sepia angels! ;-)

It does a great job as a lawn ornament, EG! Great sepia toning! Thanks for participating! :)

Vita Stunder said...

Gorgeous EG!!
Lovley sepia toning!

Have a nice thursday :)

Ralph said...

I wonder what kind of ride you could expect while sitting on that metal seat while being pulled by a horse. A rustic tale to t ell. Maybe farmers are soft these days with air-conditioned cabs and foam seating...

James said...

This is a beautiful photograph. I love the way it looks.
Nice job!

Neva said...

And the machines have only gotten bigger.....nice photo.

Ellie said...

I've seen a modern version spreading Miracle Grow :) Lovely photo - interesting tool - zero plastic on it!

Rose said...

That would have been an improvement over what we had! This makes a great sepia image.

Becky and Gary said...

Tired iron makes for the very best lawn ornaments. Great choice EG.

Great sepia scene, EG. You take wonderful pictures.
Hugs,

Eamon said...

Something a bit lonely about it. Maybe the sepia emphasises it? Still not sure whether I like sepia shots tbh. Haven't ever taken one, but I'll keep looking at yours and see if they continue to grow on me.

Leora said...

Wondering if you left a bit of green in the machine's holder...in any case, looks great in sepia.

Reader Wil said...

Your photo is very clear and sharp! Thanks for your visit and comment. I don't think you will ever make one of those mistakes, because the people, who wrote these funny letters , were not really used to writing. I think, that I, as a foreigner, shall sooner make a funny mistake than a native speaker, but even then, not one as in these lines.

Greyscale Territory said...

Amazing that once this was a practical contraption! And now it reigns as a garden work of art! Great photo!

Tricia said...

What a nice sepia - I don't know if it's just that I know the grass is green or if there's still a hint of green there. It looks really cool, though!

Heidi said...

I love how you left the grass a little green. It helps the sepia colored machine step back in time. Very nice.
