Collectif C Creativity: 8Nov2022

by Milo Smith

We like to drive around the countryside and while we enjoy nature, sometimes the man-made stuff interests us too. 

We were recently guided by a friend to this old wreck of a tractor at the western end of county road 21.  I liked the late afternoon sun as it struck the side of the vehicle but then decided to make it black and white to make it feel a bit older. 

Saturday Afternoon Drive.

Image #2 is similar, but in colour, taken several years ago in Glen Robertson in front of a former service station.  It has since disappeared. 

Rusty Truck. Glen Robertson.

The final image was made on county road 45. The landowner has a collection of old farm equipment strewn around the property.  This was (obviously) shot in winter and the snow makes the image more striking.
