Default Shed and tractor

Shed:


Old tractor:


These were taken at my grand father's house. The house has been sitting there for a few years now since they past away. A lot of things lay there untouched in the tall grass and so forth. Some photo ops to be had still.

Sad but, like you said, great photo ops. Nice shots.

Can;t add any more than what GJ's added - its always sad when family pass away. I like both pics and from what I can tell you've got access to a whole lot of potential photo ops there.

Cheers

Very interesting shots, and obviously with a lot of nostalgia behind them.

You've captured the essence of growing old as well as a time gone by in two vey simple, yet compelling images.
I wonder how the tractor would look in B&W.

Thanks for sharing a personal part of your life as I'm sure you have many memories of your grandparents and visiting their farm.

Thanks for posting these. Along with what the others have said, I'd add that the Massey Ferguson almost looks anthropomorphic with those big eyes.

I looked all over it... sadly I couldn't find the Autobot (or Decepticon) logo on it...

Taken with the 70-300, E620... BTW.

Well it's been sleeping for a long time. Who knows what it can do when it wakes up and unfolds.
