You didn't really step on that to take that pic did you? I must admit the wood looks almost as seasoned as our barn. A friend mentioned it gives character to our place....well that's a way to look at it I suppose, we encourage the thing to last another winter.http://bakemyday.blogspot.com/2005/09/soccer-mum.html
I love the shadows in this picture. This has been such a great series! So varied. So when are you publishing the book?:)
very seasoned! very neat picture. You do have an eye for those! Hope you are having a great day. I started figuring out how to get pictures into my posts. Will be uploading more later!
Great picture..love the lighting in it too, reflecting off the greenery. What is that big jug for?
A still life flashback from my art-school days!Noooooo I don't want to draw in studio for 4 hours!!! Hand...is...falling...off....creativity depleated...
Now here's a new section of the farm we haven't seen--I'd like to know what the jug has been used for, too!Amy
The lighting on The Farm is a photograpers heaven! Bee-yoo-ti-ful!
Hi Baking Soda,I love the character that old things have (been a collector of all kinds of aesthetically pleasing antiques, etc. for ages), but I think this picture would have been nicer if I'd taken it before stepping through the porch. I was so surprised when my foot went right through that board. Oops. Wasn't going to mention it, but here you went and busted me in the first comment! : )Hi Brett,Thanks so much. "Publishing the book?" Mmmmm. . . what a lovely phrase. : )Hi Heather,Thanks so much. The photos on your blog look great! Think you should join us for Weekend Cat Blogging this weekend.Hi Sam,Yes, as long as you don't walk on it. : )Hi Mona,Thank you. Actually, I'm not really sure what the jug is for. I want to say milk. It has some very, very faint writing on it that I can't make out. It's just been sitting on that unused porch since I moved here. I'll have to see if Joe knows anything about it. I do love the look of it, though.Hi Cherrybegonia,Aaaahhhhhh! Your classes were four hours? At least ours were only three. And we never got to draw outside. No, just weeks and weeks of orange highway cones with basketballs and other extremely boring objects perched upon them. No wonder so many artists are crazy. : )Hi Amy,Yes, this is actually a little peek at the oldest section of our house. If you're interested, I wrote a bit more about the history of the house in this comments section.Maybe someone else knows what the jug was for?Hi Alisha,Thank you. Yes, so often the light is the magic spark that makes a photograph. : )
Hey fantastic picture! I have two of those milk jugs and I have found another use for them! They make great containers for herbs.I have mint in one and rosemary in another.Clean them up and spray paint them a funky color and put them with their herbs out in the yard and you're set!
