Thoughts on Conservation, nature, hiking, gardening, travel...
Near Borrego Springs the vineyards are gone
but these iron farm workers labor on
foreshadowning a future with too little water
and too much heat
You can find more shadows at Hey Harriet, hosted for us by Tracy in Brisbane, Australia.
Hello Martha?These photos are so gorgeous. Arent' they amazing? Are they made of iron or wood?Such a smarty thing honouring as icon of the past.Happy SS dear friend. take care...
What an interesting history! Beautiful remembrance!

Great history, marvelous statues and terrific shadow shots for the day!! Hope you're having a great weekend, Martha!!Sylvia
A good wine is made from grapes that have beeb lovingly pruned and tended to. This iron guy is keeping this tradition going, the yield of the vines directly proportional to the pruning in process. Nice view!
Those are very cool!
Such an amazing sight! And the statues seem to make a statement that whatever the challenge, these workers weather on! The second statue in particular has marvelous detail!
Wonderful sculptures...I hope this is not the fate of all of California, water is such a valuable commodity out there...right now we have plenty, thank you very much to the snowfalls!
Timeless photography, telling a long story of patience of work and enjoying its result; what a wonderful mean to measure time as well.Please have a nice Sunday you all.
What marvelous captures of these iron sculptures ... wonderful post ;-)Hugs and blessings,
I like these rusting sculptures, Martha - i have a feeling there was an old bike somewhere!
Oh my gosh! As many times as I have been in the Borrego area, I have never seen these...wow! Fabulous find!
Those are so cool! Love those little winemakers, they look like they're working hard!
Great shadow shots.
Great images and fitting title!
I have looked at your last several posts with pleasure. You did post some great pictures of flowers and nature. I like the desert chicory – I wonder if it is the same plant which can be used to make coffee?
very poignantI keep hoping for a world that learns from the past and shows it the respect it deserves
What a creative and artistic tribute to the farm workers. I love these.
