    Default "The Old Seed Fiddle"

    Yesterday I had some work done in my back-yard. I hired a contractor to level out some land and Grass seed the area.
    He turned up with this contraption for sowing the grass seed, I had seen one some years ago. I found it a fascinating and beautiful tool.
    THE "AERO" BROARDCASTER AND SEED SOWER.
    I had to photograph him using it !
    I wanted to create an aged look so converted to black and white.

    Any comments and or suggestions would be great.

    Thank you for the memories. Forgotten all about using one of them. Must be 40 years ago and I thought it was old then.

    That is awesome! Fiddler by night seed sower by day? Those old tools had their own magic. Love the B&W here as well. Great photo, Ihos!

    I think you've done well here. You've caught the action and concentration in a nice composition.
