FSO - Through glass

I will be up north on Friday so will have to prepare this in advance, with only having given the topic thought for half the morning this morning.    And that was here on the farm, not the best place for glass.  

I told myself I'd just resort to my archives and went to take photos of the maize crop being harvested.  But wait, tractors have windows.  I'm stretching it a bit to say glass windows, they must be some sort of tough perspex.  And they tend to be very dirty windows, too.

I decided the trick was to get up close but stay out of the way because the last thing that young driver needed to worry about was me.

Same thing with my son who was rolling the maize as it was tipped on the stack.  But I've been around long enough to know what's good for me, I stay clear.


So I'll just publish one shot from my archives.  Although modern museums do their best to give children a hands-on experience, having things behind glass at museums just has to be done sometimes.   No parent would want their child's fingers anywhere near the huge crayfish that was on the other side of this glass.  Don't you love how fascinated the children are?

I won't be back to visit everyone until the weekend.  I will then vist here to see what others have found "through glass".


  1. I really like your interpretation of 'glass', Pauline. I hope there will be lots of photos from your trip north, as I enjoy them very much. I am quite determined to see your country, that so resembles my home in Cape Breton.

  2. I love coming back to see your beautiful country every week, as always you managed to find some interesting interpretation to our theme.

  3. Great job Pauline. you always come through. I usually try to catch up when I come to visit on Friday. Loved your posts about the harvesting. I see that around here in the fall but only at a distance. I can see why you would be worried with a loved one in those machines.

  4. I love life on your farm and you thought ouside the box as always. Love the shots of the tractor.

  5. Oh my, I DO love how into it those kids are. That is so nifty.

    I like the tractor photos too. Farm kids always look too young to be in charge of those big tractors.

  6. do you need a licence to drive these giants? Do you drive sometimes?

  7. I almost never leave a response, but i did some searching and
    wound up here "FSO - Through glass". And I
    actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it only me or does it look like a few of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead individuals?

    :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you list of every one of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
