love those old rakes. i think those old-fashioned rakes work much better than the ones of today.
beautiful color in both of these photographs.

I especially love the colours in the top shot and as for the bottom, I've never seen such ornate window grills. Good message too.

I love the rakes with the rust and that is such intricate metalwork.

I love the synchronous colors in each photo and, of course, the latticework is gorgeous. I thought maybe you did red, white, and blue for Veterans' Day :)

joanne said...

today i'm feeling the rust but not so much the strength... so i'm loving the reminder that it's in there somewhere :)

i think rust is a gift for the photographer! never failing to enhance a photograph.

Tracy said...

Such richness of color, texture, detail and words, Elk... I must admit I was feeling pretty rusty this week, I'll see if I can turn it over to strength yet! Happy Day, my friend :o) ((HUGS))

I'm glad someone mentioned rakes, 'cause I had no idea what they were! What an amazing storefront, someone put a lot of pride into that!

patty said...

beautiful words, beautiful images! do you know the concept of wabi-sabi? japanese idea that there is beauty in imperfection, that the patina of age brings beauty....
... sigh....
:)

Meryl said...

Such lovely old rakes....

Toni said...

Love those really old rakes and the detailed scroll work is gorgeous. Wonderful captures.

I could have left you a comment for each of your most recent posts - but I am speechless. It is sheer beauty and needs not my words to compliment it. Yes - strength in age, in lines, in curves... thank you for your comment. It touched my heart. Ange
