The Shed’s Shelf

“The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep….for babies don’t keep”

Ruth Hamilton, 1958

Nothing to the Imagination……

Rather than presenting the image with no explanation and leaving it to your imagination re what the image is, I decided to explain each image. Yesterday afternoon, the sun high, I visited an old restoration/recycle company. In back, near a loading dock, they store all manner of metal pieces for creative renovations or industrial art. The shadows were crisp, the pieces rusted and ordinary, save a few. So, I took a few shots and here they are. Some are obvious and some would have been good ‘I wonder what that is?’ moments. The back loading dock had all manner of objects that are unique, decorative pieces.

Looming

“If stars would but appear only one night every thousand years, my how they would marvel and stare.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Yours is the light by which my spirit’s born: – you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.” E.E. Cummings

Art-photography-shadown-star-symbolism-SwittersBI fancy the image more dark and brooding, less about love and hope and nature. Good and evil perhaps? A challenge to the meek, the distracted, the saints?
