Old things.

    The first is old clothspins.  Very old in the other yard.  They are by my hubby's old work van which is the source of my 2nd picture.  It looks just as bad close.  Last is a piece of particle board that has been out for years in the old yard.  You can tell I just moved next door and forgot about the old place, LOL.

    Taking pictures makes you look at things with your camera's eye.   I am always seeing things thinking about what sort of picture it would make.  Wanting to capture it.  I wanted the weathering of the clothspins to stand  out.  The color, the fraying and age of the wood.  Even the color of the rust and old paint on the old work van looks interesting when you just take a bit of it and focus on it.  And I love the blackness of the holes.  Last the wood.  I love wood.  The texture and layers which you miss if looking at the entire piece.  So my old pictures, makes me think about doing some yard work in the other yard, LOL.  But what would I take pictures of?


       I wander around the yard and look for things to take pictures of.  As you can see it can be anything.

It took me a minute to figure out the first one! A clothespin maybe?  Great shots.

I know what the clothes pins are. The second one looks like a pan of some kind that has rusted out. May be a good contain to plant a flower in. The last one is an old wood pile. Helen

Sometimes your best pictures will be of things that you would never have "normally" thought to take pictures of.

I also like the pictures of the thing in your yard but did not see anything sexy in them. Bill

Unlikely subjects that you have turned into true works of art. Loved these pictures!
