These shots, done in monochrome, are of an old John Deere tractor in the back field of a Maine farm. This tractor is far from new, rusting, and has rope or baling wire to help it along. Yet come haying time it will fire up and work through the fields like it has for countless other seasons.

I have had these photographs for a while now but have been unsure just how I wanted to develop them. Finally black and white processing since it seems proper. It presents the John Deere just as it is right now, waiting in that back field.
