More machines

Circle 2

Why am I taking pictures of machines? Well, I guess it’s because they are so much a part of our urban landscape. They move in and change our landscape but they are also part of that landscape often for months. They represent change… and to some people progress, to others a sad loss of the way things use to be. They are big and powerful, dwarfing all human sized objects around them. They fascinate us, drawing young and old alike to watch them work, staring in amazement as they effortlessly scoop up big bucketsof earth and stone.
And they are beautiful pieces of machinery. I love the different shapes and textures, all the angles and curves,and the contrast between small intricate parts and enormous wheels and buckets.
