I've given it the "Zoomit" treatment.

The machine is tangled up in the branches of a "Tree of Heaven"

QuoteThere's a tree that grows in Brooklyn. Some people call it the Tree of Heaven. No matter where its seed falls, it makes a tree which struggles to reach the sky. It grows in boarded up lots and out of neglected rubbish heaps. It grows up out of cellar gratings. It is the only tree that grows out of cement. It grows lushly...survives without sun, water, and seemingly earth. It would be considered beautiful except that there are too many of it.

Someone, has "recycled" part of the machine since the photo was taken:

QuoteNotice the cool window at the top of the triangular black cover? It lets you see the mats going by when released from the magazine. Today the cover with the glass intact was removed and are working to fit it on a working machine.
