Old Farm Tractor

Sitting in the sunshine

I'm not sure if this is old enough to be an antique or not, but it looks old to me. Old farm machinery is commonly used as "lawn ornaments" in rural areas.

Processed with a bit of sepia

I think it looks a tad older in sepia, don't you?

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

It is certainly VERY rusty looking, the sepia shot is definitely more sympathetic!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

It does look older EG but the rust looks much more appealing in the first.

Good Morning, EG! The Sepia is a great shot.. Have a happy Monday!

Revrunner said...

Old enough. I think it's been a while since farmers opted for the "bucket seat". :-)

Andy said...

Really big lawn ornaments! They are also a reminder of past history.

Pamela Gordon said...

Yep, old tractors, ploughs, milk separators and hay rakes are common 'yard ornaments' around here too. This is a great old tractor.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

It looks like a VERY old tractor! Great shots.

Jane of Levant said...

The tractor certainly has a kind of magic and I am sure a colourful past - both takes are good - looks a bit sad in the sepia - Jane UK X

see you there! said...

The construction of the wheels fascinates me.

i always wonder how these work? many will they do a great job like tractors of this day and age? i enjoy their true differences. their unique-nesses. ( :

Shammickite said...

ooooh I like this old tractor, nice and rusty looking. Unfortunately no room on my front yard for such an ornament.... but I'd love to have it!!!

visualnorway said...

It is old enough to qualify as a photographer's dream subject. The more rust the better :-)

William Kendall said...

It certainly is quite eye catching!

Sandra said...

I think it is most definitely antique and also beautiful. i love rust and sunshine and anything old

Penelope Puddlisms said...

All this old tractor needs is a large potted plant on the seat. I like old machinery and sometimes see it used creatively as planters.

Anvilcloud said...

It looks old to me in both versions.

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Sepia is a great look for it!

Viera said...

Wow...This is a great old tractor...
Fantastic shot...

DeniseinVA said...

I love this old tractor, I like all old rusty things.

Bethany Carson said...

Lovely old tractor! Great shots!

Mary Hone said...

I love it in the sepia. That's a pretty old tractor.

TexWisGirl said...

sweet, sweet, SWEET old rusty thing! a treasure!

Judy said...

Oh yes! That's an oldie!

Linda W. said...

What a great find! Nice shots.

George said...

I really like the sepia version, but I think this tractor qualifies as an antique in any case.

Birdman said...

Oh I think it falls into the category of antique. And I wouldn't want that wheel to roll over my foot. Ouch!

ladyfi said...

What a sweet old tractor!

Ginny said...

Wow, I have not seen one like this! It looks wooden!! Or maybe that is rust. Great to compare both pictures. But looking at details, I think the color one shows them better. Around here there is a lot of old farm equipment used as yard art, too. I rarely know what they are, but Phil does. In fact, I have a whole picture folder of them. But nothing like THIS!! Outstanding.

Judy said...

Yes, the sepia does make it look older!! It sure is an old one, with those all metal wheels!

Sylvia K said...

What a terrific old tractor and such a great capture for the day!! You do find the good stuff in your world to share, EG!! Thank you!! Have a lovely new week!!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I think it looks older, too!
I would love an old tractor, but I'd paint it primary colours!

Felicia said...

this is marvelous.

Mama Zen said...

What a gorgeous find!

Karen S. said...

Truly a work of art, hard worker it is, or rather was in its day!

Gattina said...

I would say it is an antique ! Looks so romantic !

Tom said...

They say that something needs to be 50 years old to be an antique! The tractor and I fit the bill. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Small City Scenes said...

Super shots. I like old machinery. Both shots look equally old to me. MB

Lowell said...

It has to be an antique because I remember this type of tractor in my youth and I'm an antique for sure. I think it's age shows better in the first shot. :)

RedPat said...

I like the warmth of the first shot, EG! Definitely an antique.

Barbara Wójcik said...

Wow:-)))))))

cieldequimper said...

It looks just perfect in sepia though I like that yellow rust!

Gail Dixon said...

I agree with you on the sepia version. Very nice either way, but I'm drawn to that one more. Nice set!

Montanagirl said...

The sepia effect is perfect for this old tractor! Nice work.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

It looks ANCIENT! :)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

That is certainly a striking lawn ornament. I like the sepia treatment also.

Country Wife said...

Wonderful pictures

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The sepia does look older, but the other way is really neat too.

Photo Cache said...

It's a nice decor.

Randy said...

Nice sepia shot.

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

sepia always makes things look older. We have an old engine that has a new coat of paint.

Cranberry Morning said...

That is a beauty! And I love the first photo best - in that old orange.

Jill Harrison said...

don't you just love old farm machinery? I think the sepia is a great touch.
Happy travels and have a wonderful week. I am joining you at Our World Tuesday.

Jack said...

That tractor is a beauty, EG. I like both photos.

Stephanie said...

It certainly looks old and rusty! I love both of them.

Chandra said...

Tina - Lovely tractor.
I want to say it is an antique - no LCD displays :)

Have a Beautiful Day!

Peace :)

Birgitta said...

Great old tractor! Wonderful pictures!

Halcyon said...

It certainly qualifies as something old!

Margaret Adamson said...

Fantastic find and shot I like the sun and rust on the first one. There is no life in the Sepia one for me.

Jen Masssey napierdailyphoto.blogspot.co.nz said...

I really like the first photo best
reminds me of some I have seen here

Phil Slade said...

It's a wonderful subject for photographer and I wouldn't mind betting you're not the first. Great lighting for your picture.

Terri said...

Oh yeah- that's old! I don't know what model, though. I can vouch for the "lawn ornaments" statement..I see them in people's yards all the time. The other day I saw a super old hay baler..I wanted to get out and take a photo, but it was right in front of a house, and I hate to make people think I am stalking them. I think I will just drive up and ask if I can take a picture next time.

Jeanne said...

This is great and definitely old enough to be an antique!! Great shots

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Oh, I really like this.

Georgette Sullins said...

I like the rust! I can see it on the Great Divide in a Willa Cather novel.

LV said...

It has seen better days and served someone well.

Debbie said...

such a cool, old tractor....I am drawn to this old farm equipment!!!!

Marie said...

Great old tractor!~ I really like the second shot!

lorik said...

I love looking at old machines in the countryside too....and have been photographing them recently. Your images are beautiful - especially the processed one.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Very nice processing on both images. I would agree with you that the sepia does make it appear a bit older than the first image.

We see these 'lawn ornaments' around here, too. :)

Thanks for stopping by to comment on my RT post.
