Eater

I'm sure there's a technical name for this machine but today I call it the eater. Yesterday as I took a morning walk I came across one eating a tree. Later in the day I drove by and it was eating another tree. They may have been trash trees, but they were taller than any in my mother's neighborhood. The property they sat on was pretty scary. I'd often meant to photograph the abandoned house even before it was abandoned and had threatening signs on its windows and doors. It was the sort of place that was bound to be torn down. Still, it's sad - the trees never looked evil. Hopefully something cool will go up in its place. I often pass it on my walks to the park.
