Despite it’s many years of use, this contraption still stands out in the field, its paint matching nothing in its organic surroundings.

Also interesting is the farmers-ingenuity for a chute handle, a simple hand-lever that a farm-hand walking alongside can operate to open and close the seeder.

    Love the colors in this, who would imagine rust could be so beautiful and abstract

    Thanks Susan , that’s so exactly why I enjoy farm-yard photography. Everything has an artistic slant/bent/angle, everything looks different at different times of the day, and there is rust everywhere!
