Thoughtless Thursday

  1. Although it's Thoughtless Thursday, I can't help but wonder about this equipment. Is it still used? How many seasons has it endured to collect all that rust?

  2. SRQ - I photographed these two grain bins on an abandoned farm this past weekend. The farm belongs to a family we know and little farming has been done on it in the past few years.

  22. You were able to give colour to time. Green of hope. And as there can't ever be something like 'dark yellow' brightness as well.
    Great picture.

    Please have you all a good Friday.

  25. We called those gravity boxes. I've got a disgusting story about gravity boxes.

    When I was a girl, I spent summers at a much older brother's farm with his family. (They have a daughter my age.) One year, rats got into the oats. Enough rats that their waste was ruining the oats. Somehow my friend and I got volunteered to pick the rat poop out of the grain in the gravity boxes. We got to wear bandanas over our mouths and noses to "protect" our lungs from the dust. What a disgusting job! The worst thing was, I was found to be very good at it and the dust made my friend sick, so guess who got the job? Rat poop picker extraordinaire, that's me. ;) Somehow I doubt that job title would impress anyone on a resume...

    Hope my little tale doesn't ruin the beauty of your photo. It's lovely!

  30. This photo appeals to the farm boy in me. What would we have done without these harvest wagons? Today they're much bigger, usually transported by large trucks.
