The Amazing Stories Behind Pictures: Places, Events, Poetry, Works of Art Some pictures have far more to see than what is immediately obvious. It's also a window and a library of whatever went before. Tell us this and so we'll be taken beyond the picture deep into the nature and feelings that will buttress the pictures and pull us to come back.

Default Never send a Bobcat

While I was looking for an ill-cataloged image, I came upon this, which seemed worth posting given the recent discussions of composition.



Douglas A. Kerr: Never send a Bobcat to do a real Cat's work

Now, do we think that with the distracting element of the Bobcat removed . . .

Best regards,

Doug

Good choice on perspective. I am sure they got it loaded and off loaded but I wonder what this particular length of log will be used for or was it a matter of efficiency ,laziness, that they didn't just make another cut?

Well, I shot this out of my front window, so that was just preordained! Nice that it worked out.

This was about a large tree than fell over in a windstorm near our (then) home in East Dallas. The trunk was cut up and the pieces hauled off (not sure to where - some landfill, likely). Clearly, that process did not match the machine they had in mind to load the pieces with!

There was likely no mechanical engineer on the crew.

Thanks.

Best regards,

Doug

I rented one of these little machines once and drove it. It is surprisingly easy to find oneself in this kind of situation. Just saying...

Oh, I'm sure. Never drove one myself.
