In the old days of farming, farm equipment was often left where it died. But this farmer decided to bury his old C JACKSON MAYO ten feet under bog mud.
Now, a 56- years old tractor that was buried in a bog for 10 years has not only been rediscovered and dug up, it’s expected to be in full working order soon.
The old gent says it was buried for about 10 years. A hole was dug and the tractor was placed in it upside down, then it was covered back up completely.
“I did not think much about it again until last year,” said Mr. Jackson, who added that after a dry spell, the man who had buried the tractor dug around in the area and found the tractor after it had been 10 years underground.

Vintage Vinyl of Evanston, Illinois is a record store frequented by some of the world’s most famous musicians and used as a reference in works of popular culture.
Over the years the store has been a favorite haunt of many noteworthy actors, musicians and authors, many of whom have referenced it in their work. The most noteworthy example of this is when former Evanston resident John Cusack chose the store as the original filming location for the movie High Fidelity.A different location was used, but the name “Vintage Vinyl” is still referenced in the film.
A gramophone record (phonograph record), commonly known as a vinyl record or simply vinyl or record, is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat polyvinyl chloride (previously shellac) disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc.
The phonograph disc record was the primary medium used for music reproduction until late in the 20th century. It had co-existed with the phonograph cylinder from the late 1880s and replaced it by the late 1920s. Records retained the largest market share even when new formats such as compact cassette were mass-marketed.
I’ve always enjoyed my position in history in terms of technology. In middle school I enjoyed the dawn of the home video games, we had a Pong and then later a Magnavox Odyssey², which my Dad liked over the Atari system because it came with a keyboard and perhaps had more educational opportunities.
I graduated High School in 1984, just when personal computers were becoming mainstream. The report card system still used punch cards! In my first year at Boston University, I did have a class that required sending stat problems to the mainframe computer for batch processing. By my sophomore year you could rent time on an Apple computer to work on papers. By the time I graduated just about everyone had their own home computer or laptop.
During this time I also used film cameras, developed my own negatives and had a closet darkroom set up. In High School I had and Olympus OM-10 35mm film camera and then after that fell in the lake I got an Olympus OM-G.
My first online purchase was an old 4×5 Graflex Crown Graphic press camera that shot Polaroid Type 45 Positive/Negative film with and developed in a bucket.
When digital cameras rolled around, I wasn’t an early adopter. I was busy with a career in the Computer Magazine Publishing Industry which was seeing an upheaval. Instead when my son was born I bought a Sony video camera and took a lot of video and had a small digital point and shoot camera. It wasn’t until years later that I had time to get back into photography and purchased a Panasonic Lumix G Series mirrorless camera and started to take serious photographs. Later I added a series of Fujifilm small cameras and a full frame Canon 6D DSLR to my equipment. My most recent addition has been a GoPro Hero5 Black action camera. The world of digital technology is always exciting and I’m glad I lived in the pre-digital, vinyl record, cassette tape analog world growing up to really appreciate what we have now.

Shot at the Four Aces Diner in Lebanon, New Hampshire in the original 1952 Worcester Diner Car number 837. If you are in the area, you have to try their Red Flannel Hash – so good!
We love diners and breakfast all day, so when ever we are traveling around and spot a diner, we’ll stop in for a Western omelette or eggs over easy. Luckily we’ve been able to find them all over the country. I have a full section in my portfolio just of diner photographs.
New Hampshire is simply classic diner fan heaven with so many classic diners spread around the state! Here is a check list of diners to experience the next time you are traveling around New Hampshire:
We’ve haven’t even hit all of the diners in the state of New Hampshire but we’ve certainly been to our fair share in Vermont, Massachusetts, Maine as well as more far reaching spots in Montana, Florida and even diners in Canada.
My wife Wendy and I even “starred” in a TV commercial filmed in a diner on Prince Edward Island for the Atlantic Lottery. There I am at 27 seconds getting my 12% piece of the pie! Yum!
What if you had a great product to sell but it was invisible? How would you describe it to potential buyers? How about you get them to see how the wonderful qualities of the product? How would you attract potential buyers to said invisible product?
Selling products like artwork and fine art photographs online is much like selling an invisible product, because people search the Internet by using text based search engines. Sure there are image search features on search engines like Google but for the most part buyers search using text.
Even within an online gallery like Fine Art America, text searches are used to bring up a selection of artwork and fine art photographs from the massive database.
If a buyer can’t find your art, they can’t buy it. It’s as simple as that.
Keywords are the key to buyers finding your work
One of the most basic ways for your artwork and fine art photography to be found is via keywords. Keywords are descriptive words used to describe the image.
In essence you are trying to guess what word or words a potential buyer would use to find your artwork.
Another word for it: Index term, a term used as a keyword to retrieve documents in an information system such as a catalog or a search engine
Usually online art galleries or databases require anywhere from 10 to 50 keywords. You should start off with the first words that come to mind when looking at an image. What words would you used to classify the image on your computer to find it again in the future?
This quick, top of mind words are going to be the most valuable. For example, this photograph of a dog taking a photograph in the studios.
Right off the top of my head I’m going to think: dog, camera
Then I’m going to start getting more detailed and try to describe the image further with more detailed description words like:
I can faithfully say that I’ve never seen an old vintage red truck that I didn’t like. I don’t think my car can physically drive past an old red truck. Call it an obsession or some thing primal but I just love the look of old red farm trucks, especially found the wild.
It can be a completely restored, freshly waxed, just pulled out of the garage beauty or an aged, weathered and rusty old relic in a field. I just love the look of these vintage old workhorses.
If I had the money, my next prop purchase would be an old red farm truck that I could drive around and place in the country landscapes that surround my area. Forget about the prop guns, skulls, baskets, suitcases etc that I use, I’d be happy to transport them all around in my old red truck.
Of course I know nothing about cars so that might be a problem. Although I do understand that these old cars are much simpler than today’s computer driven vehicles so maybe it wouldn’t be such a problem to maintain it.
Even better would be to meet someone who owns a great old truck and would enjoy driving around the area parking it in the perfect spots for me to photograph. Anyone out there in the Upper Valley who owns a great old vehicle and meets this description? 😉
Photographing Vintage Cars in the Wilds of New England
Meanwhile I’ll just have to keep my eyes peeled and find them “in the wild” as I call it. Not in a car show but out in the open in their natural environments.
Sounds crazy right? Finding a beautiful old vintage car parked in the perfect spot ready to be photographed? Well luck favors the prepared and I’ve been lucky on a number of occasions. Partly because I’m out photographing a lot and partly because there are lot of great old cars still knocking about in New England at least when the weather is good. Something about Yankee thrift I suppose which as kept these old cars in top condition and stored away from the elements.
Bob Seger – Old Time Rock n Roll – The Distance Tour 1983
Did you know? At the lowest point of record sales, a Vinyl revival began in the mid 2000s. Worldwide sales of vinyl records have since increased every year since 2006. In 2015 music sales of vinyl records were back at the level of 1988.
