Posted especially for the "Wood, rust, and leaves" forum. That's all there is here--besides sunshine and shadow.

Lovely picture, Marilyn! It reminds me of my grandparents' garden and days long gone.... Thanks for sharing! Greetings, Anne

Marilyn how could you forget to tag this "hay" ?!? ;-)

©Würmer on July 31, 2007

I feel ignored. Rename it "Dreaming of Bartowian's Haystacks" -- or I'll NEVER forgive you... ;-)

Marilyn Whiteley on July 31, 2007

I didn't want to clutter up the "hay" collection, but you're right: it belongs there.

The original owners would have been either Swedish or Norwegian immigrants, so I wonder what kind of haystacks they made here in Wisconsin.

©Würmer on July 31, 2007

all kinds, I suspect, Marilyn.

in Central Texas I would ask around among the church seniors of a small ethnically-so-inclined town if I was seriously interested in finding out...

...but, oops, we ARE the seniors there, ain't we?!!? ;-)

And now we have all those questions that we never thought to ask ...

hello Marilyn Nice Photo,the lighting is perfect. I like it. This old agricultural tool reminds me the chair I have in my classroom at school :) Cheers Syl

Wonderful photo, Marilyn! The play of light and shadow is just fantastic!

Marilyn Whiteley on August 3, 2007

Thanks Ryan. I can remember when there would have been sunshine and now shadows here at this time of day ... and no ferns, either. But interesting things happen when nature reclaims the land!

Not much to say which hasn't been said already. I love it! We have old equipment like this in the field behind my house.

I love this light and shadows it's one of my beloved themes. On the whole I like your way of photographing and handling color, plus your very nice and long introduction story. Thank you for that. I placed you among my favorite photographers. Cordial greetings from the Netherlands, - Frida -
