Combine Dreaming

Little Boy
Tall grass
Warm hazy sun
Chickens be wary-
Red trike rusty
He tells me
Combine dreaming

For those of you that aren't farmers (I told my husband to start telling people that ask what I do for a living that I am a chicken farmer AND stay-at-home mom) this is "Combine" as in "A power-operated harvesting machine that cuts, threshes, and cleans grain".   Now it makes sense, right?

 I used my Butterscotch Vintage action in Photoshop CS4 on this image. I will be posting Part 2 of my Soft and Dreamy Texture tutorial with an action in my next post.


  1. Funny! Yesterday my dd was riding her bike and a friend was in the field across the road from us cutting the field on his combine. She said, OH look mom a farmer!! She was amazed! Although we live in the country, guess she doesn't see many combines!

  2. Oooo Rita, I just love this pic! Thanks for all your yummy actions and inspiration!

  3. Rita, this photo is so awesome! Reminds me of my childhood waaaaay back! Your talent is awesome as well! Hootnonny

  4. This reminds me of my childhood too. This could easily be my brother and our chickens (in addition to standard sized chickens, we had a little red Bantam hen that had the cutest chicks ever seen). Nice memory. Thank you!

  5. As a former FarmJournal editor, I read that headline the right way the first time!

  6. I love the Butterscotch effect <3

  7. Butterscotch Vintage..what would I do without you. Rita...love the picture.

  8. I just happened across your blog a few days ago, and I just want to say thank you for sharing your awesome talents! I had never used an action on PSE and now, I don't know how I did it without! Thanks!

  9. Wonderful photo....wonderful action.
