On our way back from seeing the Dewey-Granby Oak Tree, as we drove along the windy country road, I spotted a very interesting and creative site in someone’s yard: a rock wall, lined with old boots, filled with plants and flowers. As we kept on going, and I kept exclaiming how cool that was, my husband finally offered, ‘Do you want me to turn around and go back?” To which I replied “Yes, I do!!”.
Now, the actual site in person is fairly drab looking. After all, rocks are not all that colorful, and neither are old boots that have been sitting in all kinds of weather elements, for probably years. But I knew I could work the image into something. And anyway, it was the creative concept of the wall, and the country feel I was so drawn to. I really just wanted to take that whole rock wall, boots and all, with me, so I had to and at least photograph it! So at the risk of being in that position once again, of someone coming out and yelling at me “Get off my property!!“. Or at least some questions regarding my motives of photographing their property. (People who know and love me, know there isn’t much I wouldn’t do to get a shot I want. So for one thing, I’ve trespassed more than I care to admit. lol.) But all that did happen was some cute kids came to the screen door on the old house. I hoped a parent would come out, so I could offer to send them whatever it was I came up with, with the photo….because I just knew I’d turn it into art somehow. And I tried. I’ll be printing this as a 10×20 piece for my wall, so I can put it in my house somewhere and look at it every day, and enjoy.
