Not of Nature

The majority of these images are of one stellar collection of memorabilia, placed aside near a set of grain elevators.
Switches, pulleys, gears, nuts, bolts, cable, the wheels that used to be driven by now-nonexistent belts
--we have no idea what it was, but it was enough to make both of us swoon in rapt pleasure!

Normally, I tend not to aim my lens at things not of natural origin. Knowing that, my friend Roger may have been
amazed to see me enjoying this stuff as much as he was. The reason lies in the middle of the back pasture where I grew up;
it was the equipment that used to keep the well operating. Or maybe the still? I'll have to get some digital images of that to add here.

A perceptive visitor noted that while my title is "Not of Nature" because I've included items from many sources,
the reality is that for the collection of machinery that inspired this gallery, the concept at work is really
"BACK to Nature," since nature is adding to its photogenic character by breaking it down, little by little.
