Neglect Theme #205

This cement is in serious need of a paint job.  I added a grunge filter with Topaz 5 in Photoshop Elements 9.

The last sylo shot.  The steel ones are kinda cool too I guess.  They certainly are circular.  lol

Passage of Time Theme #224

I am so glad you have all been enjoying my photos of the grain sylos.  There has been some confusion about the steel ones I was talking about so this shows a bit of them all.  The ones on the left are the steel ones.  The ones you can see a bit of on the right are the red aged ones you have been seeing.  The white ones are slightly newer wood ones but still old.  The farm equipment sitting between them is a grain auger which moves the grain from trucks into the sylos.  Between them is where the cars are.  I went down there today to take these pictures special for you.  Tomorrow I think I will post the steel ones because they are sort of neat in their own way.  I think Steve made the comment about space and yes, up here in northern Alberta, Canada there is alot of space.  We live on 160 acres and alot of ranchers and farmers around us have alot more than that.  A really beautiful area!

Automotive Theme #18

These two abandoned cars are behind the old grain sylos.  I cracked up at the name of the red one, “Country Sedan”.  They got that right!  lol

Abandoned Theme #2

The abadoned grain sylos on the road to our property.  I love the textures and colors.  Behind them are the new style metal sylos.  Not nearly so interesting.

An old weathered grain silo on the road to our house.  I love the wood on them.
