This red and rusted piece of machinery caught my eye as I was photographing this barn. It seems to be still in use, though I have no idea what it might be used for. It does show up nicely against the weather barn boards and the stone foundation.

  2. I love this shot. The different textures and materials make it very interesting.

  3. I’m with Carver the different textures really make this an awesome photo.

  4. The rusty old machinery sitting in the weeds, the weathered boards, and the battered stone foundation all make for a great photo!

  5. I agree with Pamela Gordon’s description.

  6. I too am drawn to the equipment and misc. tools and what nots laying around a barn. They have a history also. The rust adds character.

  14. Is it a hydraulic jack? I wonder if they planned to jack up this side to work underneath, maybe? At any rate, I love the stone foundation!!!
