Old Covered Bridge

This covered bridge is in Leonard’s Mills, Maine. I had a difficult timing deciding which photographs to add here, the location is beautiful. As usual I shot twice as many images as needed.

A sunny crisp day gave all the light and contrast we could hope for. It was probably at least 20 degrees cooler than South Carolina.

There are some things I miss about New England. Days like this are one of them.

 

American Icon

John Deere, and that distinct lettering, is an american icon.

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.
