A Bit of the Past


Spotted stuck and abandoned in a marsh along the Portage River, this ancient example of horse-drawn farm machinery reminds us of when agriculture extended to well inside the Three Rivers city limits.

Fascinating! An excellent composition with great interest and lighting.

I like photos of old farm machinery ... but have not seen many in the snow ... the shaft of light is also special.

I really like the saturation of color you got. Snow for me always tends to lead to overexposure and look flat. This shot really grabs the viewer.

Lovely! Wonder what history it holds? Pity it hasn't been restored to sit in someone's garden.

Oooh, pretty and evocative of times past.
