last fallen leaves…

an old deck clustered with last years fallen leaves. Neither winds, rain nor human intervention disturbed this setting.

“Life moves forward. The old leaves wither, die and fall away, and the new growth extends forward into the light.” Bryant McGill

Balance

“We come into this world head first and go out feet first; in between, it is all a matter of balance.”

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”

Paul Boese

Free At Last……….

The hold is gone. The freedom is there. Scarred and worn. Damaged. But free. Don’t just sit there…move! As the saying goes, ‘Free at last’ Now what?

Rustic Shed: ‘May I Help You?’

I took a back route today just for a change of pace. I saw a rustic, old building and circled around to check it out. There had just been an officer involved shooting/fatality nearby (robbery suspect attacking with a crow bar met his demise) a few blocks from where I was.  I knew I might as well sit still for a bit until the area settled down. I got out to take photos a respectful distance from the shed and was intent on taking in the beautiful, old, weathered siding.

“May I help you?” I heard. I looked to see a none too shy woman approaching me. I explained that I was impressed with the shed and the rustic appearance. She was more concerned I was with ‘the city’ as they have been after her to tear down the structure for several years. It has no foundation and currently violates some such ordinance about being too close to the curb (there isn’t a curb). So, I assured her I was not an inspector or agent of the government and that I merely enjoyed the building.

The lady told me the structure was built by her father in 1938. The nearby house was built in 1908. She grew up in the house and eventually assumed control upon the passing of her parents. She wants to preserve the old shed out of nostalgia’s sake and has access closed off to stop intruders. Several times a year she cuts back the English Ivy from the shed and nearby Fir trees. I thanked her for the opportunity to take some photos.

Vines: Probing, Intruding, Prying………

Photography: Woody Debris…..

It’s always there. The old snags, branches, rotting pieces of tree that have weathered away and are usually ignored in favor of wild flowers, rock formations or tree their selves. For whatever reason, these old trees and branches and bushes caught our eye.
