About Me

My photo
I have a great Interest in Photography, I love reading and learning, I enjoy many different ways of expressing my talents in art. I Like culinary food art, carving fruit and vegetables and catering parties. I like drawing and water coloring as well. Other activities I enjoy are dancing, golfing, racquetball and bowling. However, my favorite things to do is travel, eating out and taking pictures along the way. I am a member of the Nevada camera club. It is one of the best ways of learning Photography because you get to learn will doing. I learn so much from the other members, their classes and field trips. What pushes me the most is their competitions. I am currently learning photo shop on my computer, That might take me a few years though.

Friday My Town Shoot Out "Transitions"

I saw this old bench in a town called Nelson, NV.. It was a Place where all you could see is antiques. Very cool place. When I saw this bench it reminded me of the bench I had at home. I couldn't help but think about the history my bench has, I could only Imagine the past this one had. How many places it has traveled or how many owners it mite of had. Where had it sat the longest. The bigest question was how many people sat on it and enjoyed the comfort of sitting there looking at that special place they placed it.

                                    
This is the bench that sits out in front of my yard. I got it twenty years ago for Mothers day. I lived in Oregon at the time and it has traveled  to Colorado and Nevada where it sits now. If it could talk it could tell you lots of stories of my Children growing up and all the guests who came to visit us along the way. My life has been very interesting but to here it come from the prospect of this bench would be really amazing. I have refinish it twice and as you can see it needs it again, but it's still sturdy and I have no plans on getting ride of it any to soon. It has way to much sentimental value.

Looks like no one will sit on it now, sure to give away under someone's weight!

a good chair can last a long time. It will look brand new when you paint it again.

It's nice to have a bench in the yard, or along the sidewalk, to rest or chat with passersby. Nice shootout!

Love the first shot of the bench. I like the metaphorical nature of your benches.

I really love that first photo, Gayla. I'm so glad you are joining the Friday Shoot-Outs.

Your interpretation of this theme is much deeper than I wanted to go. Yes, your bench certainly has been through a lot of transitions. Great job, my friend.

Cindy said...

Very nice post! I like your interpretation on the theme!

the story of your bench and its transitions is very interesting - if it could only talk. what could we learn about the people that passed by over the years.... would make a great movie.

Interesting concept of the transition of very inanimate objects that could surely tell a tale about the tails that once sat on them.

It does look like the same bench, just in 2 different stages. Cool comparison. I like benches like this!
