2 comments on “Just Another Combine

  1. Whether you know it or not, you have found a common thread with the two pictures of old combines in different locations. My observation is that, the farmers still using these types of older combines will not be the first ones to complete their harvest. They are the older farmers with smaller operations who have always been conservative with their machinery purchases and can make a combine last many years longer than today’s larger, more modern operations. I tend to think they are also happier in doing things the way they have always done them and do not worry about being the biggest operation in their neighborhood with all the fancy GPS-driven monster machines they make today. They are the salt-of-the-earth people who made farming a respectible way of life. They are stewards of the land. They do not worry about keeping up with the Joneses. My kind of people, living a simpler, less complicated lifestyle. Like many of my ancestors. In many ways I envy them and the pace with which they live life. We all need to slow down sometimes. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    • Great comment Tom. You are absolutely correct in that they were smaller farms and were doing a little at a time. I am just really drawn to making images of combines and barns. Don’t know why but I just keep looking for more. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
