Hehe, nitroshots: This one is almost decomposing :wink:
But look at the following skeleton from New Zealand:

Very special construction, seems to work without rubber wheels...
And look at the mounted little horn(s) in front :lol:

And another one, this time not from a tractor but an excavator. I called it

Recoil:

Recoil 26064 by tombomba2, on Flickr

Captured with Nikon 14-24/2.8 at 24mm f/4.0, ISO 400, at around 35cm.

What I find fascinating is the delicate cobweb in the window.

rusty bowl, still working on this. I think its got potential, I am just not extracting the best out of that old rusty bowl. Maybe I just need a good sunset.

This is a very nice subject.
I'd try to get more in focus, the upper fifth is not sharp enough.
The lower part is not as critical - simply crop 10-20% off.

Actually, I don't like rusty things, but the photos here are really impressive.

Quite a while since a posting here, not the best but hopefully we can get some more.

A Log Hauler at Currumbin Valley, a bush sawmill operated here from 1942 until 1954.
