The treatment which you chose suits perfectly to this type of old agricultural machine

Park in the field until it dies of rust, every farming area I've seen from Oklahoma, and all around does the same things; WHY?

Wow, back in its day it was a luxury for most of them to have cabs. Beautiful sepia

so why do they let in there ?? Very nice sépia for the subject

@Veronique: It seems a bit small and outdated and perhaps no longer runs. The newer machines are big monsters.

Not much to glean from the landscape now as the big machine is gradually reclaimed by nature.

Process fits well, an unusual find. Looks like a toy in fact.
