photoblog image Flat bed

Flat bed

This flat bed truck is probably my favorite truck on the farm. I think this is because I got to drive it the most. Or maybe it is because I got to drive it first. I can remember my father driving with me in his lap and allowing me to steer. I was too small to reach the foot pedals.

In the background you can see a couple of silos where we stored wheat and corn and to the right a shop.

All these vehicles on your dad's farm amaze me, John! How many of them did he have? I really like the sky in these pics because it gives the colors such a soft feel. And I like the bit of history you are adding about what things were like when you lived there. smile
John Eagle: He has quite a few. Growing up they were all in use. Now less so as you can see. He has quite a bit of newer equipment as well but for me it is less attractive to photograph. I enjoy the colors, the rust and the weathered wood that the old equpiment offers.

The history... well I like photos with stories. And of course for me there are many stories tied up in each piece of macinery. Like learning to drive, eating sweet corn in the field with my grandfather, playing in the hay stacks... Going back now and taking these pictures allows me to take a trip back in time.
