Agricultural Geometry

These structures, silos and feed bins and mixers, are a common sight in rural America, something no one notices except for work. But for city folk like myself they are an agricultural masterpiece of solid geometry, with cylinders, spheres, cones, wedges, prisms, and cubes built large in the green world of farming. I can only see things this way because I have never worked on a farm. Since I probably never will, I can tour through rural areas celebrating the way farm buildings look as art. 

I'm back from my too-short vacation in green and lovely central Virginia, with a few drawings to bring to the By-Product.
