I was taking a few shots of the derelict bungalow up the road, for this one I was focusing on the texture differences in the weathered components of the gate. It was just hanging on then, now it’s succumbed to the winds and collapsed.
Looking at it later, I thought the knot in the piece of the attempted repair wood looks like an eye, and perhaps the bolt and hinge make it feel like it has arms and it is embracing the gate for a comforting hug.
I looked up the word anthropomorphic, but decided it was too tricky to spell for attempting here.
A not-very-subtle reminder that I have shops, at
Redbubble and Pixels,
where there are a selection of my images in all sorts of buying options
(Art, Canvas and Framed prints, and the popular greetings cards and notebooks)
It only takes a couple of small sales to keep the site ad-free, so do have a look if you have time. Thanks.
