Bales of fodder on Grimmett's farm frame one of the cotton ginneries in the St George irrigation area. The ginnery bales cotton fibre after ginning.
My title is a reference to one of Tom Roberts' famous Australian paintings: Bailed Up in which he depicts a group of bushrangers holding up a horse-drawn coach running between the goldfileds and Melbourne. This painting hung in one of my childhood classrooms.
It's a beautifully composed shot with excellent lighting. So Ian, it would be very nice if you would add a "hay" tag so that it could join the other "bailed up" photographic subjects from the northern hemisphere's summer. We amassed quite a collection!
Hey, I've done that. I was impressed by the collection, but it shows the dominance and globalisation of the round bale technology. I loved your pic, Marilyn of the Indian painted ox, yet I think I award first prize to Daniela Brocca for her distinctive collection. I liked her barn image especially. Ian
It looks like you are in the dog days of summer now Ian. I thank you for directing me to this picture because it affects all my senses: I can almost feel the warmth radiating from it, smell of freshly cut hay and hear the crickets, grasshoppers and the buzz of flies. :D Obviously my world has been blanketed for awhile now and is tooooooo quiet....well except for the sound of crunching snow.
Hey Ian, i look me now every day some of your photos. I live in a village. Such bales of straw we have.

My English is very bad. I use very often the translator. I hope you understand me!
Now I look back at your pictures.
Greetings from the East of Germany,
I understand all your messages in English perfectly, Ge Ko. Of course short sentences are best if you need to use a translator. I hope my English is understandable and translates well. I know I use long sentences and complex thoughts, but perhaps I can encourage your use of written English. I can read a little Deutsch, and use a translator, if you prefer to write in Deutsch.
You say you live in a village. Though I live in Sydney, I grew up in a village too, so I understand rural life.
Ian, danke für Ihr oder Dein Angebot, die Kommentare auf Deutsch zu schreiben.
Go ahead, my friend. I look forward to learning more Deutsch.
