Abandoned farm wagon

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 23 May 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The metal wheels and frame carried a wooden tank (mostly rotted) and the front looked like it might some kind of sprayer. So at one time, this might have been used for fertilizer or insect control - the tank does not seem large ehough to be useful for irrigation.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

Another really interesting scene which is screaming out for HDR treatment :-)

@Curly: Curly - you and I have different views of "HDR." Both the rusty Volkswagen and this old wagon are 3-shot HDR's (plus-2, metered, minus-2) processed in NIK HDR Fx. I prefer my HDRs on the realistic side, leaving the viewer to wonder "HDR or not?"

Good find, vintage tones suits well to the subject.

It's an old one . Perhaps also to bring water to farm animals ...

Wonderful find. Too bad it wasn't found earlier and put in a museum. It is a witness to how things were done before our more modern methods.

Pretty rare piece of old agricultural machinery. Good shot blends in nicely.

I'm going more down the "natural" root too these days, although I've recently posted two mad one! I'm hoping that perhaps I might see the same reactions over the next week or so.
