Oh Yes - I DO like this:)K
Excellent! I caught myself tilting my head to look down.
I like it!
Hello again Lucy. If you return to my something Sighted blog you will see that I left a clue about the window display. Look at his neck in the left side of the bottom photo. :)
Hello James.I've been to-ing and fro-ing to see your pictures during the day, trying to work it out, and was just about to leave a note on your blog asking 'Neck and side-burns?'.I do hope you say more about how he came to be.Lucy
A hint to get shovelling perhaps.
Good Morning Aileni.If only there were something to shovel! Yesterday's papers had a satelite picture of Britain and where I live is the only place with green showing instead of snow!Lucy
Beautiful subjects for monochrome are everywhere if you look for them- And you do :-)
YES!!! like it, and spesially the colours and the shades.Happy weekend Lucy.
Thanks Rune. I rarely travel far from home which makes me value all the more what is to hand.Lucy
Hello Anne.Interesting that you see colours as well as shades in a monochrome photo. That makes me proud because it shows it has 'worked'.Lucy
Very nice! Happy Monochrome weekend and thanks for visiting!
I think we have all been using the shovels lately for the snow. I like the wood textures; how about taking away the canes and the spade with the plastic handle; would be great with just the old wood shovel handle against the old wood of the shed. I'm being picky because it's cold outside!
Hello John.I was thinking your monochrome might today have been Wokingham in the snow. I was expecting visitors from that area on Thursday but they couldn't get out of their drive, let alone travel to Dorset.About the picture of the fork and spade handles. I don't compose pictures - I take what's there. I know that's an un-necessary approach . . . but it's what I do!Lucy
Hello Irene.Glad you like the shed and handles photo.I also like your 'Happy Monochrome Weekend' greeting - as if it is a special festival!Lucy
Those looks like they have been used a lot :) A bit of history in those handles, I guess :)
Hello Lene.Yes, history in the spade and fork but in the hand tools at their feet too.Lucy
Great perspective and textures Lucy. A fine image.
Thanks Aware Writer.Incidentally, I was taking pictures of driftwood last week but my photos weren't anywhere near as interesting as the wood itself. I'll have to try again.Lucy
great shots....the spades help a lot during winter...mine is here, hope u can visit
That is a gorgeous old shovel, Lucy. It would make a glorious study in its own right.I love the angle. Totally throws the viewer off.
Hello Julie. John was saying something similar. I'll have to make a special photo of the older handle for another day.Lucy
Hello Chie.The spade will be even more useful in the spring, I expect.I have tried to visit your blog this evening but couldn't get it to load. (My computer is behaving very eratically today.) I'll try again.Lucy
It's a lovely, earthy feeling you've captured. It makes me think of spring and planting and growing, despite all this snow!I'm not sure why I decided to photograph that holdfast - it's the sort of gross slimy thing my brothers would have teased me with when we were younger, and I would have run away screaming. It did seem to look like little hands all clasped together. And I love sea urchin shells! I used to collect fragments of them - the little bumps left where the spines once were make them very tactile.
I like it! The sepia colour was perfect!
Interesting how the old often-times works better or is preferred to the new, eh?
Hello Kitty.Garden tools always seem to hold an optimistic atmosphere.As for the Holdfast . . . I'm glad you posted that - and the sea urchin shell too. Although, it seems from the comments, the pebbles are the most popular of your three images, I was pleased to see the other two more because they are less common as subjects for general photography and therefore (to me) more interesting.Lucy
Hello ElinSire.The gentle sepia seemed to 'fit'. It didn't make the photo seem old or sentimental but was less cold than straight black and white.Lucy
Hello Marka.I definitely like old tools (as long as they work!). They provide a sense of continuity and purpose. New tools hold potential - but uncertainty too.Lucy
