I love wrought iron gates. The history that they must have seen is fascinating.

I intend to do exactly that this weekend. Lovely images, ELK. You have an awesome weekend doing all of the above, as well. =)

joyce said...

I love the birdbath..is it yours? The iron gate thoug, reminds of the end of the movie "The Exorcist", where the priest falls out the window & impales himself in the iron gate!

Sue said...

"relax. reflect. rest. renew. rewind. repair."

Love that! Your beautiful images, especially the reflection in the swan bird bath, set the tone for doing just that.

Have a great weekend, ELK.

Hi ELK. Brown can be so dull yet here it has depth and color. Love it.

Renee said...

Hi - Love the water reflection with the bird! I would have loved to have seen you crouching around this scene to snap just the right angle. Nice work - or is it play? hmmmmm.

kendalee said...

Thank you, that's advice I'll take happily! Pictures are gorgeous too, as ever :)

Relyn said...

i can hear the creak of the gate. the hinged laughter with which it sings.

its melody is that of childhood.
