Miles Point Tractor – point of view is everything.  To most of us, Maryland’s Eastern Shore means boating, blue crabs, beaches, oyster shucking and shopping.  To many of the residents it means farming.  The robust farm economy outpaces even tourism along shores of the Chesapeake.  I saw this tractor at a rally to save Miles Point in historic St. Michaels from further development.  From a distance it appears to be an antique tractor among antique boats and cars.  But up close, and down low everything changes.  Using a wide angle lens to emphasize the strong vertical lines of the plow, the smoke stack, clouds and lamp post, complemented by a high dynamic range treatment to bring out every last detail of the old machine, puts this tractor in its appropriate position.  This is my “Miles Point Tractor”.
