Inspired by Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – It’s all about nature
On a recent walk near Mulranney in County Mayo, we came across the remains of an old tractor. There were bits of engine, a wheel axel, pieces of rubber, rusting metal and broken glass.
The tractor had probably been brought onto the bog to collect turf and had broken down. But why hadn’t it been worth taking back and repairing? I have no idea. Tractors are expensive, even old ones.
So it was left to decay and become part of the landscape. It is strange the things that people leave behind.
