In a Black & White Mood Today

I had to run to the bank so I decided to go to the neighboring town and see if I could pick up some shots while out and about.  I was in a black and white mood so here is what I got.

I was out’n’about near northern Sawmill Road in Columbus/Powell, Ohio and had an opportunity to fire the shutter.  I stopped at the Emily Traphagen Preserve which is part of the Preservation Park District of Delaware County’s.  On the way home I finally stopped to capture the silos near the roundabout and the abandoned farmstead to the west on Hyatts Road.

Antique Tractors

In addition to the Image of the Day 09.21.11-Farmall Tractor by Blue Maple Photography I thought I would post some of my favorite images from the archives of antique tractors I have captured over the past few years.  Of special note is the color image of the Oliver and Farmall image that was used by MPEX (Midwest Photo Exchange) for their latest photo contest.
