Between the Dust and the Dusk
About 7:00 p.m. last night I stepped out of the back door to do something
(I can't for the life of me remember what it was)
and was nearly overcome by the dust.
One minute I am like "what the heck?"
And the very next thought was
"Oh - harvest".
Sometimes I am more amazed at the dust
created by harvesting soybeans than the
size of the harvesting equipment.
As you can see, I am not the only one thinking
"what the heck?"
I am always trying to get photos of the neighbor
without him seeing me. If someone doesn't know I like to blog
fart that happens in the neighborhood thing I see
they may get a little suspicious about the picture taking.
Especially if they know who I work for.
Between the dust and the dusk (the sun was beginning to set)
and trying not to be seen, it was hard to get good photos.
I just wish you could see the size of that bean head.
(That is farmer talk for the big thing on the front that harvests the beans.)
Then it dawned on me.
The shed would be a perfect place to get close-ups.
But woe is me. It was getting dark and he was harvesting a huge field.
By the time he came back around my camera was acting as if it couldn't see a thing.
Here it comes.
Here it is.
Making a turn.
There it goes.
Please with myself (but not my camera) I headed back to the house.
I still have no idea what I originally came outside to do.
But who cares.
I got photos.
