I wasn't really sure if this should go in transportation or not. It dosen't move anymore so I figured it was more urban life-ish.

I've driven past this tractor for a few years now. Always glancing at it and wondering if it ever gets used anymore.

The tires all hold air still.

The engine seems intact.

No holes in the radiator.

I've never heard of this name before.

Someone took a shot at her a while back.

Gauges have seen better days, but I bet some of them could still work.

Something tells me though that old #27 Euclid will never run again or be useful anymore.

Thanks!
It was sort of a test run for that lens. I had just gotten it the day before and I thought this subject would be a perfect match for it.

Yeah, that was actually the last pictures I took of that shoot. After I hopped back over the fence it seemed obvious that I needed that shot too.

Yes, that is a bullet hole the exit hole is at the back of the cab. I'm thinking a .45 cal round.

Shot #2 is great and I like the last one too. Great tractor!

A bit of contrast, hue/saturation, and some topaz.
