Wow the work on these is so intricate - I like the rust - it adds to the character.
I love the contrast in colours and texture. There is so much going on in these shots.
These are beautiful! love the details and the colors.
is there a cool store behind that beautiful front ?
Beautiful post as always. That is a beautiful picture. I would love to see more of it.
Beautiful photos. That door is a work of art.
needed those words today , Elk, thank you
Ilove the colors and the details, and yes strength in all of us.
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.
beautiful. love the rakes and the gates. So ornate and beautiful.
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.
Your blog is beautiful... I love the old colored rakes here and your words...may you have strength in you as well... roxanne
So so cool :)
I love colored metal. Great shots!
That iron trellis is absolutely yummy (for lack of a better word). Wowza!
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 :)
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.
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))
Once again, our minds are running in the same channel ... yours more intricately and beautifully
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!
ooohhh, i am in love!xoxo
oh my!...the rakes I love!
these are just beautiful! what a picturesque place you found. i'm so intrigued as to where this might be. looks like a little side street in a quaint little spanish village.
I love all those gates and scroll work, lovely photo!
I LOVE the filigree on all the ironwork you've capturedin these photos! Great eye!
i love that ironwork, how much work they put into one gate!!! precious thoughts
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....:)
Such lovely old rakes....
Love those really old rakes and the detailed scroll work is gorgeous. Wonderful captures.
Such incredible, color-rich images today.
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
