"The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people."
~ Karl Marx
They’ve started leveling the old farm field to the east of us. Caterpillar track-type tractors and earth levelers have been reducing the former farmland into a muddy flat in preparation for the grave yard that is to be built there. My neighbor, who has commented on the explosive growth of the town to the south east; he also commented that our new neighbors would at least be quiet.
Driving by yesterday the parked Caterpillars caught my attention and I made my way through the mud fo get a shot. It’s a composite of two shots. One for the sky and the other for the foreground and machinery. The shooting position was somewhat dictated by the shoe swallowing mud and silt.
By the way, the ideal shot in my head is to find an excavator parked in a wide open location with a stormy sky and a high rise building off to one of the sides.
