Due to the wet, and snowy, fall we’ve had this year, my son’s soccer games have been moved to all different fields around our town.  There was one in particular that we had never been to before as it’s in a more rural area.  On the way there, we passed this old barn which I thought would be a good photo subject.  So the other day I took a few minutes to go back and grab some brackets.  The reason I called this the lobster tractor is because the first thing my wife said when she saw the image was that the tractor looked like a lobster.  I didn’t see it myself until she pointed it out, but now all I can see is some bizarre transformer movie where old farm equipment transforms into crustaceans trying to take over the planet.

    Haha – that’s not what I thought I was going to see when I read Jimi’s tweet 🙂 But, yes, it does look like a lobster now that you mention it.

    Absolutely top drawer, my friend! LOVE the subject and composition here! I am left with a strong desire for a bit of garlic butter, but that’s totally beside the point here… what a GREAT photograph!

    Even got the beady eyes! Clever title. I like the way you’ve cropped the building to concentrate the attention on the tractor.
