indicative of how I feel at work sometimes, up to my neck in long grass. love this poignant still life of the mower in its natural habitat, enhanced dramatically by the out of focus background.
Great use of DOF in this picture.

Ready for another summer? That's a LOT of grass ....

It's interesting that the decomposed seat is the most "used up" looking part of this mower. I like how it's situated in tall grass. Fine shot.

I simply love it. And maybe I too post a JD foto today.

from the grass, i'm guessing this isn't used too much! nice spot!

John Deere's last forever - except the seats obviously. Like the way you framed this.

@jeff (aka dogilicious): the seat's just getting broken in...
nice shot! like the DOF. WOuld not want to sit on that seat, though.

A well used John Deer lawn mower is always something everyone is afraid to throw away. You keep it around because it's so hard to get rid of ;) Great shot!

Maybe it's the focal length and dof, but something about this looks like a child's toy. Fun pic. Lovely processing.

A brilliant image Grant, the position of the mower, and the dof is excellent.

@ordinaryimages: i was wondering where that went...
I really like the detail of the seat. Probably a hint of larger issues underneath. Cool find.

Nothing runs like a deer:-) To me this is an exceptional shot not only in composition, but technically.

beautifully composed with that wall or door

Busted vinyl seating but still mow the lawn like a beast :) Great find.
A John Deere that isn't meticulously cared for, that can be a rare find in the midwest. Love your composition in this shot.

Thought I'd been keeping up better, but you got ahead of me. Another great composition. You didn't have to move the mower to get that perfect aligment of elements did you?

@Twelvebit: i'm not sure it moves...
the sun and weather have gotten to that seat!!! :) beautiful work -- and i love that it says John Deere!!!
