Willie and dog, running an antique plow behind an antique Case tractor HDR

The photos in this album are of the property, possessions and projects of a fine older gentleman named Willie Shepherd.

 

He owns a LARGE property in Lookout, California. It is full of old tractors, cars, trucks, bulldozers and vehicles of varied and sundry description. My girlfriend Zoe bought a 1955 Carpenter (1954 GMC based) school bus from him, and he towed it the 17 miles to our Ranch with his old tractor on public roads:

Photos of the bus can be seen in another set of mine:

Willie also renovates and runs old steam engines. For years Willie has been showing and demonstrating his equipment for anyone interested.

 

A few years ago, Willie had a steam powered sawmill in operation, on which he sawed a log during his show.

 

This year (2014), Willie's open house show is to be held on Father's Day, Sunday, June 15.

 

You can telephone Willie at (530) 294-5141

Be patient, he's a bit hard of hearing.

How to get to Willie's Ranch

 

Almost all of the images in this set were 3-exp HDRs, processed with Photomatix. The camera was a Nikon D50.
