I came across this shot while driving around the countryside killing some time. Usually when Leah is in church, I’ll drive around exploring and taking pictures of whatever I can find. On this particular Sunday morning, I was getting frustrated with a lack of material. I was running out of time and hadn’t taken a single shot.

Right before I gave up and turned around, I noticed what I thought was a bench in the ditch. As I drove by it I thought it was weird how the top of this bench had what looked like piano pedals sticking out of the top of it. Didn’t seem like a comfortable design.

I was about 500 meters past it before I clued in. I slammed on the brakes and backed up. I think I spent the next 20-30 minutes photographing this both with my digital and with my Graflex Crown Graphic 4×5 press camera. This picture is taken with the Graflex.
