something so beautiful about
well worn tools
noble with stories.
That weathered wall
honors them well.
What a wonderful eye you have:)

I particularly like the mottled bricks.

The textures & patina are so wonderfully to the eye, and so tactile... Those mottled bricks have such spirit of color! :o) Happy Day, Elk ((HUGS))

What I love is the smell of patina and the thoughts it awakens. Imagination running to and fro moments unseen.

what great pictures - I love how you focus in on small details that I easily overlook. Showing bits and pieces of the tools against the brick is just fantastic.

Who would thing hanging garden implements could be so beautiful against a lovely, weathered wall like that.
