At the demolition derby
Chewbacca cam, Fuji Pro 100 BW instant film
I really wanted to go to the combine demolition derby in Banks, and I thought I could rely on my friend Dan to join me. He was game, and this last weekend we headed west of town to the little community of Banks, Oregon. They have a whole weekend of events. We arrived in time for the truck and tractor pulls. Dan was able to explain some of the finer points of the competition for me. The weekend culminated with a demolition derby of combine farm equipment. Smash! I had a lot of fun, and so did all the people who attended that day. This photo was taken back toward the stands from an observation deck. The gentleman from Channel 37 who was there to video the events was kind enough to let me share the space. The competition commentators are up in the "crows nest" behind. Thanks, Dan! I hope we got at least one good one of the derby!
