The artful rusty tractor

My father-in-law has what you might call an en plein air tractor shop (or graveyard, depending on your point of view). Yesterday, in the low-angled sun of early evening, the rusting tractors seemed to speak of nostalgia for a disappearing way of life and, at the same time, to take on a new and different life through their wonderful colours, textures and shapes.

      Thanks! I half composed some haiku as I walked around the tractors, listening to the intermittent click of broom grass pods popping in the heat, but didn’t finish any… May happen yet…
