You have captured the essence of wabi-sabi in this , and many of your recent photos -- great stuff Marilyn!

Marilyn Whiteley on July 4, 2008

Thank you, Bruce. It certainly attracts me!

I was intending to add a note about the photo, so here goes:

Notice the corner of this house. Stone buildings are common in this area, generally made with a mixture of "found" stone and quarried local limestone which is used at least at the corners. I had never before seen a building that combined concrete corner pieces with stone!

This is a beautiful capture, Marilyn! I really like the details in the wall, and the corner looks very unusual indeed! I also like the tall grass which even increases the impression of abandonment. Greetings, Anne

The corner of the wall is a wonderful detail, and I was thinking the concrete blocks looked a bit odd as well. I like the color in the other stones. It also works well as an abstract, with a mix of horizontal and vertical stripes. Cheers, Ryan

Thanks, Anne and Ryan. I also took a shot that included a bit more, but I, too, liked the abstract, geometric qualities of the simpler view. Greetings, Marilyn

I like the message! It's like an environmentalist's porn centerfold. LOL. Away from the message it is well composed too. :)

It only needed a photographer......

Gr, Ed.

Thanks, Chris and Ed.

Yes, Chris, at the rate we're going, we may all come to that!

Greetings, Marilyn
