Old Shadows


Old farming equipment at Coolart, a 19th century homestead at Somers on the Mornington Peninsula.

Old farming machines
Once just worked the heavy earth
Now shadows of art

Shadow quote on chubskulit's Etcetera Etcetera:
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better. - Plutarch



May the sunlight and shadows always be with you!

The old machinery has gotten a new lease on life as shadow makers!

This is almost like a retirement party for the machinery that worked so hard for so many years .. an appreciation of their shadows as art is perfect !

Implements of work have an honest style - in both form and shadow. Form and function have their own beauty!

Sharp-toothed implements,
Old and worn from hard use, now
Rusting quietly.
