Shoes on a Wire

 


I had been meaning to take a photo of these balls growing on this tree down the street from my parent's house for several weeks. Yesterday I finally had time as I was headed to my Artist Guild meeting. I parked in front of beautiful pale yellow gingerbread house and snapped a few shots. I am not sure what kind of tree it is, but it's big and it has white bark underneath a layer of bark that peels away revealing the whiteness. Then I noticed through the nearly bare limbs that there was a pair of shoes hanging on a wire! This could have easily been an Odd Shot for Odd Shot Monday ,but even though the sky was overcast, I wanted to use it for a Sky Watch post instead. The homeowner's tiny dog was behind the iron fence yapping at me as I took the last couple of frames. I just shook my head and drove off on to my meeting with a smile on my face for finally take the picture I wanted with an added bonus.

A note to Jo at A Majority of Two: I cannot seem to get into your blog. Everytime I try, I get kicked off the internet!

Happy Sky Watch weekend!

I love this photo. It has a very artistic quality about it. It was even more interesting when enlarged.

Paulie the bark is white underneath the tannish gray bark that peels off from it if that helps.
