grassfyre @ clifford tractor pull - pt 1

i didnt think that this event would need to be a 2 part post, but there are just so many cool tractor photos that cutting it short is not an option

here we go
i found out that my dads band.... grassfyre, was playing at this event

in this link you will find a schedule of events where it lists bluegrass festival sunday 2:00 pm
pooch JP and pooch raspberry met me there as they have known my dad since we were teens
i decide to surprise my dad as this event is only about one hour drive and i havent seen my pa and step mum in a long time;
maybe almost a year.  i dont know.

here are a few shots of the tractor pull
no, thats not my dad....but they are cute

its a pretty serious event in these parts
check out the rules

now just a few fun pics of tractors.  they are just so pretty and colourful

 OK.... i think thats quite enough fun for one day

more tractors and the grassfyre portion of this event to follow in a couple days
soak these up first haha

all for now.....

  1. They ARE awesome! I would love this down home can you get? These tractors have real all the old farmers too!

  2. Whoa! Pull up the horses...that's a lot of tractors!!! We have a tractor parade in Des Moines every summer...that's a trip!

  3. I never thought about photographing a tractor but you are right, some of them are really cool..

  4. I had no idea about this variety! For me a tractor was just a tractor and never paid them much attention, but from now on I have to look at them with different eyes. Thank you! :-)

  5. tractors are the COOLEST! I went to a tractor pull and witnessed onw tractor pull itself in half!

  6. Beautiful shots. So many of tractors all in one place. Great event.

  7. Well Laura
    I know I will find something unique when I visit you!!

  8. Looks like great fun, Laura and how brilliant that your dad was there. I look forward to seeing more. XXXX

  9. I agree, pretty awesome Laura!!! JoJo would call these hot rods LOL!!! Dzintra♥x

  10. Regarding your comment:
    There is this probably american movie where a guy wearing a circus outfit(?) walks on a wire above Niagara Falls. I was just a kid but I can still 'see' this scene. Years later I watched 'Niagara' starring Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotten on tv and I thought I couldn't miss these falls but haven't visited them so far...

  11. Well, I'm not sure I can wrap my head around tractor love....

    but the sexiest men alive photos...I could wrap my arms around that..hehe



thanks for visiting!
