Old Color and New

basket of gourds on rocker

Old Colors and New

I was stunned by the volumes of bold texture in every element of this photo including the shadows, and the contrast of the warm weathered tones of the gourds, basket and woven rocker seat with the turquoise of the rocker itself. I look at this all the time, but not until the angled evening light came between the houses  and washed over just a part of it, just the tops of everything, that these mysteries were revealed.

This rocker and a few other features starred in another photo from last fall, “Autumn Colors”.
