"...I can find nothing
to give myself to..."

From "Still" by A. R. Ammons

"...below the brown exterior
green mechanisms beyond the intellect
awaiting resurrection in rain..."

Quite so.
Best to you.

word verication adds the following: azmzra
(quite so also, I'm sure.)

Breathtaking! What could be better than a rusty barrel? Leave it to nature to perfect the color scheme.

Dave said...

Very, very nice.

Almost looks like gold leaf raining down.

Compliments to the complimentary colors! and textures. I wish I understood more of the poetic references, though! ;-P
(And thanks for your encouragement on my paintings.)

I'm just trying to picture you taking these photographs.

Hi all y'all!

Dale: Likewise back atcha for a lot of things I find on your site!

Lee: Well, thank goodness it did rain some yesterday (Saturday) -- and your visits are also like much-needed rain, it helps keep me on my bloomin' toes. :-)

Deidre: Am so glad you visited! I saw this while being thwarted (by a stout fence) from catching railroady stuff, and I count myself lucky the barrel was just so fine and beat up.

Dave: Glad you liked! I've been loving your etching-like snow shots, BTW.

am: It was a stunning thing to see. Still not sure what combo of toxic chemistry created this beauty.

KPW: Ah, no need to understand poem stuff -- if you like the colors, that's enough.

TIV: Heh... Well, picture a chunky tomboyish middle-aged gal in t-shirt, yoga pants and clashing Crocs pulling her car over near the most suspicious-looking warehouse loading docks, railyards, and busted-up cedar-chopper shacks imaginable and meandering about, slowly contorting her achy knees for a low close-up, peering over fencelines and around concrete barricades for the odd reflection, and you'll not be far off. :-)

Marvelous image of you doing your shooting. Not too different from my own!
