CASE


This is a series from our Country Fair when I took my g'son on October 8.

I saw this vintage tractor out of the corner of my eye while on the Sky Lift and almost missed it altogether. 
Had I gone back to capture the whole thing, the Magic Hour would have been gone.

As we say, half a loaf is better than no vacation at all!

You got there just at the right time, Ginnie...look at that beautiful light you have captured.

Oooops! Tyres could use some air!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. And YES, those tires would be rough for the ride! smile
I love the lightening shown on your capture, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Kavita. It was all gone a second or two later!

Las texturas de este viejo tractor son muy buenas, me gusta como el sol nos muestra gran parte de la maquina.
Saludos.
Ginnie Hart: The Magic Hour is our best friend in these situations, Alex, isn't it! Muchas gracias.
Imagine when this was the very latest and desireable piece of farmware.
Ginnie Hart: I can just imagine, Chad! Indeed.

Oh Musketeer this is fantastic, James would love to be tinkering with this beauty.
Well spotted.
Ginnie Hart: James and a whole lot of other guys, Musketeer! They have a huge collection of the oldies here at the fair. This is just one of them! Thanks.

BTW, my date is booked: I leave on Friday, Dec. 4 at 9:35p! It takes my breath away....
This is where I have become lazy Ginnie...not catching that magic hour..it makes such a difference.A wonderful shot.
Ginnie Hart: Well, Ron, we can't always catch the right moment, but when we do, it's...MAGICAL! I'm not sure it has to do with being lazy. It's such a small window, as we all know. And we can't be everywhere at once. Anyway, you catch your moments, too, I know. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Marcie. Thank you kindly.
vintage tractor for a vintage processing , your eyes are not vintage but full youthfulness wink
Ginnie Hart: Man, Jean-Luc! Flattery will get you everywhere, as we say! grin Merci.

I love the evening light in this, Ginnie; these deep shadows really add to the aged feel of the old tractor.

great shadows and contrast wonderful framing well done
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Fabrizio. Grazie.
Well captured in nature's own spotlight Ginnie. Great stuff.
Ginnie Hart: Nature sure knows Her thing, Janet! smile Thanks.
This would have a tractor fanatic drooling for more Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Brian. For sure! Thanks.
You are right about half a loaf. That is gorgeous light.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Not many people know that saying, Michael, but I grew up with it. Thanks. smile

Light is so fleeting. Good that you caught like this. That's quite a vintage tractor. We had a Case at one time.
Ginnie Hart: Light is indeed fleeting, Sherri. We grab it when we can! Thank you. Now in hindsight I wish I had titled this "A CASE in Point!" smile
Your fast reflexes pay off again...
Ginnie Hart: It's amazing how Thanks. you can get these oldies but goodies moving, Larry. grin

Beautiful processing! When I first saw the tractor I wondered if it was a toy - and then when I read you were in the sky lift. Well, what can I say? GREAT shot!
Ginnie Hart: It does look like a toy from above like this, Martie, for sure. Thanks a million.
A beautiful fine old case!
