Friday's Fences

This is a portion of the fence that surrounds my Stepdad's garden. In the background you can see potatos and onions growing.
I thought a vintage processing was in order as well because of the old plow.
Linking to Friday's Fences and Rural Thursday.

I hope that is an accent piece for the farm and not one that he is still using! Then again, maybe it works,just fine.

I agree the vintage edit is perfect for this shot.

Very interesting machine for gardening. I assume it's hand held an human powered. Makes for a great photo.

Your second picture is fabulous --especially for THAT particular shot. Love the old tiller. Great fence picture, Carletta.
Hugs,
Betsy

Your photo awakens in me the longing to plant a garden again!

Great shot Carletta of that "antic" tiller of yesteryears. My back aches even thinking of how much work and energy would have been exerted to push that up and down fields. The old draught horse ones that farmers used and walked behind to keep steady would have been hard enough.
I'll take your word on the potatoes and onions - ha ha.
Exceedingly informative and interesting blog. Well done.

Sheer bliss, bit coolish in the early mornings. Pity it won't stay like this till October! ( sigh!)

Hi Carletta,
Thanks for the comment. God is good!

I like this old garden tool, and it certainly looks better in b/w.
Blessings!

Marie said...

Oh yes, these look fabulous...just the perfect touch for the subject matter!

That is beautiful, the second shot really shows the texture of the old wood. Lovely.

I really like the vintage look with this photo. I remember using a plow like this when I was growing up.

Oh my mom would love to have that lil goody decorating the fence at the farm & it's great w/ a vintage twist! love it =)

Ann said...

did they forget the digger/plough, and just put the fence?

Pat said...

Great vintage-looking edit!

Faye said...

Oh, I remember these old push plows--and what hard work they were to use, especially if you waited too long between plowings! Like your editing choice--a goal of mine to learn how to do this in photoshop--especially sepia tones.

Rose said...

Amy Burzese said...
