And to most people in our increasingly fast-paced world, they are just one more bit of farm detritus that they’ve never seen in person.

Photography Blogger.net has gathered photos of tractors into a collection they call 16 Elegant Pictures of Tractors. The photo above is an excerpt from one of them, called “Decline of the Small Farm No.2” by Randy Nyhof.
