Park And Pump

Here, a farmer was seen pumping water from his vegetable plot (on right) and discharging the unwelcome flood water into an irrigation canal on left.

I was fascinated by the use of the PTO (power take off) transmission from the drive train of the tractor to power the water suction pump. The multi-tasking and multi use tractor is such a flexible tool for the farmer. Park and pump where it was needed.

The Day I Met Mutt Rempit

The Day I Met Mutt Rempit

Me And You And A Dog Named Boo (Mutt Rempit).

Went to Sekinchan today to test Sony's new HDR Sky Camera App. At the paddy fields, I met a farmer raking his field, accompanied by his pet dog.

Asked him where he stays and he told me it is quite far. Naturally, I asked how the dog travels. He showed me.

The dog balances himself quite well on the back of the motorcycle, even when going around corners. Occasionally, the un-neutered dog jumps off when he sees a female.

Quite an amazing sight and Winter Solstice must be my lucky day.
