Barrel race?

Gravdigr 05-02-2020 07:54 AM

I'm lost, too.

Thought it was just me...

I think that he wanted to put this in the Horse thread.

It's likely he's drawing an analogy between the way the machines look in this thread and the body positions of horses in the horse thread, especially the barrel racing pic. It's like a pic association (thread) thing. It requires a little abstract reasoning:

Two Un's back from the dead on the same day and look what happens.

The twin-bottom plow at top right simply appears to be in rapid motion, a function, I think, of its forward leaning and oval wheel. These are both common ways to impart movement in drawing.

The drawing of the harrow (second pic on left) shows a backwards leaning tines forward look, indicative to me of a quick halt.

These impressions were instantaneous to my eye and, of course, lose a little something in explanation.

The top right - two wheels appear oval because they lean to the side in order to follow the previous furrow. The third wheel looks round because it's upright for support.

I know I stepped on Bruce's toes with my reference to the race photo, but my observation remains unchanged, stronger with each view.

I wish I knew what you're babbling about, I haven't a clue.

Sounds like he's sayin' that if you didn't dance so close together, he wouldn't step on your toes.

(I think he wants to lead.)

I think Jim is saying that this photo

reminds him of this photo.

I see the lead wheel is mounted at an angle so it gives the illusion of motion.

BigV 05-04-2020 09:53 AM

It may well give the illusion of motion in that illustration, but it is actually tilted on the actual machine for other purposes, like the wheels on a motor road grader.

Thanks for the help. That's what I am babbling about.
I should have emphasized "illusion."
