Ruby Tuesday #31: Sprocket To Me


"Sprocket To Me"
Jacksonville, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at
In case you missed it: Check out my entry in Nicole B's Scavenger Hunt!
My dad would've loved this title I can tell you. Puns were his "thing", and he was not just a master, I think he may have been the master. So the title's for him, but the photo's for you.

This is some kind of machinery that would be used on a sod farm. I know this because I took this photo at (wait for it) a sod farm. But not being a sod farmer, I couldn't tell you what its purpose is or even what its given name might be. I do know it made a cool photograph.Violence Unsilenced

And why do you think Mojo, they would take the time to paint them RED? I'm glad they did but why, I wonder? Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

Felisol said...

Indeed this is a cool photograph.
Studying the many wheels (sprockets); could they form a combine sod harvester?

It is a cool photo. Love all those red spokes and wheels. I also have an agriculturally-related post, and I probably know less about agriculture than you.

Robin said...

It made a VERY cool photograph.

Great shot; I'm sure it'd be great in sepia too.

Missy said...

Your right, very cool photograph! Although, in Iowa, we prefer Green

Ralph said...

I love gears, I don't know why. But the intricacies of gear manufacturing interest me. This red looks like International Harvester red, like their famous Farmall tractors.

Pun rhymes with fun...

Jeri said...

Such a great shot and I love that title!

Amanda said...

A work of art I must say.... positively Red!

napaboaniya said...

Dad's in the machinery business and honestly, to think of it now. I don't ever recall seeing a machine of any sort that's red @_@ Weird huh.
Though I've got no idea what's a pun that you've mentioned. I like this shot pretty much :)

Pouty Lips said...

Your dad sounds fun. The title is clever.

Louise said...

Your powers of reasoning are amazing! (And it DOES make a cool picture.)

Sara Chapman said...

Sprocket to me, indeed! Looks like the (red) apple didn't fall too far from the tree! Nice photo, Ruby Tuesday or no, just a great capture.

Mar said...

It is a cool pic! and intensively red :)

Jama said...

I never see machinery that color, so cool!
In the beginning when my son brought home insects as a child, it freaked me out but over the years, I learned more about insects through him and became more encouraging mom. I think I'm the one who's more interested in the rhino-horn beetles than him! well anyway , they made a great model for my photograph! ;)

Interesting red picture. I like it.

Kay said...

What a great way to get myself in gear this morning.

: )

I love puns, even if I have no skill at them.

… so now I guess I should move along…


Happy Tuesday Mojo!

Lovely shot - and a great post title.

Your Dad taught you well, Mojo.

Pagan Sphinx said...

What a cool shot. I wonder if that's the actual color of the machine and if not, how you got that tone of red. It gives it something that a starker red would eliminate. Not sure if I'm making myself clear...

storyteller said...

Love the title and your RED photo for this week.
Hugs and blessings,

Eaton Bennett said...

I know what a sprocket is, but I'd be flinging wild guesses at what a sod farm is. Anyways this is 'red hot' looking machinery...a perfect Ruby Tuesday shot. :)

Sunshine said...

This is a cool "red" photo! The machine sends me a message -- "don't touch me if you really don't know exactly what to do with me because i bite." hehehehe.

Nice one!
