R/Alphabe-Thursday

Original photo of McCormick-Deering tractor

R is for RUSTY.

It's no secret that I like rusty objects and this one was sitting out in a field, an ornament. How could anyone resist taking its photo?

Does anyone know what year this tractor was made?

A little research leads me to believe that it's probably a McCormick-Deering 10-20, a model they made from the 1920's up until WW2. If so it has earned the right to look a little rusty.

Now that is old. I'm guessing early 1900s. As you might imagine, I like your Photoshopping!

That’s a picturesque tractor even though rusted! I ever seen how the tractor’s rim looks inside.

Shammickite said...

I would guess at around 1920-1925, possibly a bit later. Is that vague enough for you?

Jo said...

That field looks like a secluded garden and the rusty tractor like a real ornament!

edenhills said...

What a great tractor! Shame it was let go to rust and not kept nice. My nephew remodeled a tractor that was probably from around that same time period. Fun crank start and all!

It now blends into its surroundings perfectly, especially so in Autumn!

Dominique Goh said...

Interesting composition. Love the rustic look.

NatureFootstep said...

cool, I have never seen a tractor with that kind of wheels before. It´s a beauty. You last edit suites it nicely. :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Stunning piece of artistic rust. Love how your edits enhance the depth of the rust.

Anvilcloud said...

It's always a joy to find rusty things. I guess it is partly because rust takes its own path and isn't predictable. It is also something we don't see everyday.

I love photographing old farm equipment and your processing is lovely!

Indrani said...

Very well photo treated.
Looks classy in spite of the rust. :)

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I like rusty objects, too. The rustier, the better. :-)
