Reply Denzil November 27, 2016 at 8:18 pm More appropriate for a graveyard …Loading... Reply Judy @ NewEnglandGardenAndThread November 27, 2016 at 8:21 pm I love old tractors. When I look at these photos, I also think of all the projects a creative person could pursue with some of those fascinating parts – garden art, birdhouses, on and on. Good find. 🙂Loading... Reply Denzil November 28, 2016 at 7:05 am I agree Judy, there is a lot of potential here. I will keep an eye on them to see what happens to them.Loading... Reply Anabel Marsh November 27, 2016 at 8:30 pm May they rust in peace – that’s so funny (though not for the tractors).Loading... Reply the eternal traveller November 27, 2016 at 9:01 pm Nice collection of photos, Denzil. Would this old machinery be worth anything?Loading... Reply Denzil November 28, 2016 at 7:08 am It must be, Carol, if only for their scrap value. Funnily enough, later on the same day I was walking through a village about 10 km away and a white van was trawling the streets asking (in a very loud message conveyed through a loudspeaker) for scrap metal, old fridges, cookers, pans, motors, bikes etc. I felt like saying “just go south for 10 km and it will like Treasure Island for you!”Loading... Reply the eternal traveller November 28, 2016 at 12:53 pm Ha! Those people at the tractor graveyard are sitting on a small fortune and they don’t know it!Loading... Reply Denzil November 28, 2016 at 12:55 pm Yes, I’m thinking of going into the scrap metal businessLoading... Reply the eternal traveller November 28, 2016 at 12:59 pm At least you know where there is a good supply. â˜ºLoading... Reply Pingback: Florival and the north-south divide â€“ Discovering Belgium Paula December 6, 2016 at 4:00 pm I like how you move from wide angles, and context of the subject to closer ones. Very observing post, Denzil. I am glad you discovered my challenge. Thank you.Loading... Reply Denzil December 6, 2016 at 4:27 pm Thanks Paula, I am aware that the resolution or texture or whatever isn’t the best. It’s just a compact digital camera and I haven’t worked out how to set it for the best B/W photos, but as you have a biweekly challenge I better start to learn!Loading... Reply Paula December 6, 2016 at 5:41 pm 🙂 your photos are good, Denzil. Do you shoot as black and white or you convert them in post processing?Loading... Reply Denzil December 6, 2016 at 6:04 pm I changed the setting on the camera (Lumix TZ70) to “Dynamic Monochrome” to take all these pictures, and did not do any post-processing.Loading... Reply Paula December 6, 2016 at 7:11 pm That’s cool. I tend to take everything in colour, to see later how it works in both options. I enjoy post-processing.Loading...

Your comment has only brackets… nothing in them!Loading... Reply Denzil December 13, 2016 at 12:45 pm Well spotted Marion! It was a link that didn’t quite work. I’ve amended it now. It’s close to Florival https://www.discoveringbelgium.com/2016/12/03/florival-and-the-north-south-divide/Loading... Reply Miriam February 8, 2017 at 9:00 am Wonderful photos Denzil. Imagine the stories behind these old tractors, there must be so much history there. Great play on words too, love the title. ðŸ˜ŠLoading... Reply Denzil February 8, 2017 at 10:02 am Thanks Miriam. I am surprised a scrap dealer hasn’t been around; there must be some valuable metal there.Loading... Reply Eddy Winko February 13, 2017 at 3:47 pm What a fantastic collection of photographs, it’s odd how appealing the subject is and your choice of B&W is great.Loading... Reply Denzil February 13, 2017 at 4:12 pm Thanks Eddy! One of the stranger sights I have come across on my walks.Loading...
