Serial Plate by panfah Serial Plate by panfah
Shot on my parents' farm in Minnesota, a rusting 1958 John Deer 440 Industrial Crawler. Here we see the serial plate that is affixed to the base of the right boom arm, not far from the hydraulic controls. This shot really shows how the rust is peeling the paint away, chunk by chunk.

I don't think this piece of equipment has moved since I left for college 12 years ago, which probably helps cinch it in the "ruin" category.

Thank you! I was very happy with how the paint and rust interplay with the plate on this shot, and got quite lucky with the DOF.

-Indeed, the dof couldn't have been better :aww: I also have quite a few shots in my gallery of rust from a John Deere tractor on my Mother's farm, they really make for some good sessions- -Link-

Thank you! I probably should have titled this "Made Long Ago," or something akin to that.

I appreciate you taking the time to look at my work!
