what a great shadow shot - love the way the windpump shadow has just snuck into the corner!!

This working farm offers shadows of commerce (the windmill) and farming (chickens and other beings under the shade of the tree). The look of a simple farm when compared to the big agribusiness we often see is quite refreshing...

Shadowy windmill,
do you pump fresh water still
or are you silent?

Love this photo.
It's the kind that makes me wonder who first lived there? what did they do? where did they go?

Also, the shadow is brilliant...
