Lawn Ornament/ Sepia Scenes


An old plow finds new life as a lawn ornament/address marker

This photo has been tinted with half sepia even though it was nearly a natural sepia-tone shot when taken.

I love to see these old things put to a new use. Oh, the picture of the horse and rider....blissful!

What a shame it would have been not to exhibit this plough!

CDB said...

Love this.. never would have guessed it was yard art. (:
I love the "snow on branches" shot so much.. we don't get a lot of that around here (D.C.), but we did last night!!

I love farm implements in sepia--so natural

The cast iron plow is a necessary implement, to break ground and plant life sustaining plants and crops. Yet the frozen Ontario soil awaits the early spring to create furrows of food on the ground, Nice capture!

Paulie said...

Anything with snow is beautiful to me BUT you have captured it exceptionally well!

Betty said...

It is nice to see things put to a second use. Great picture.

The plow does make a beautiful lawn ornament -- and a great sepia photo.

Jacob said...

I think you've shown other old farm implements used as lawn ornaments...it would take a large lawn to make that work.

I like this shot a lot; and the blue sign gives it a perfect finishing touch!

Leif Hagen said...

I think that plow will be unemployed at least until May!

Becky and Gary said...

We have had those in the past and they make great conversation pieces too.

I see the use of old equipment used here quite a lot.
Beautiful sunshine in this one!

Rose said...

I do like it--my brothers have actually plowed with plows like this. Or similar to it.

I love the reuse of such a character rich lawn ornament! The sepia is a very natural tone for it. You always find the most interesting things, I think one day I'd like to come and see Canada. You make it feel so beautiful!
I also love the sunset shot of your farm, I would love to drive home to that every day. Of course I'd hate to have to keep it running though. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
