Friday My Town: Lawn Tools

Lawn tools?!?? In November? This must have been suggested by somone living in a different climate than here in the North! I was going to skip even thinking of entering something for this week... But then suddenly 'out of the blue' I happened to remember this picture... The garden shed at my parents' old place last spring. (Some of the things in there even go back to the days of my grandparents...) It's been published before on this blog back in May (for Ruby Tuesday) but never mind.

I'll be curious to see what others have found at

  2. That is a beautiful picture of a fairly well-kept up yet obviously regularly used shed. And you were clearly careful with exposure and composition. Very nice. I just opened the door of my shed and shot as fast as possible before stuff tumbled out.

  3. what is in that wicker basket shaped like a bottle? Your lawn mower person been hiding there when you are not watching?

  4. It is a rustic and artistic rendering! I have never seen a Goldeneye, you even got a good reflection. And your rose is really stunning!

  5. You certainly have lots of lawn tools here! I have no garden so have to look around what the town council used to take care of the lawn around the parks here!

  7. Everything in that shed is pretty much as it was left three years ago - the last summer before my mum died. Not much has been done in the garden since then (except we've had hired help to mow the lawn). It will be the estate agent's headache to come up with a way to make that sound like an exciting project for prospective buyers when we get that far.

    The bottle in the wicker basket has probably been there since my grandfather's days! He died over forty years ago.

  8. I'm glad you remembered this photo. It is a treasured reminder of days gone by and a place just waiting for some creative photo compositions. Nice!

  9. You only need one shot when you have one like that. It's perfect.

  10. I think this is a really cool shot and could not fit the theme any better!
