Unlike some I know, I only take found objects with me in the form of visual memory. Here are several such memories from this May onwards.
Clearly more than half of my photography is capturing found objects since I had 40 images gathered immediately. Therefore there will be another post for this Friendly Friday challenge next week since
Sandy asks for our . objet trouvé
In my case it may not be an object as such, but also an element of nature, a combination of words, or as in the case of the featured photo above nothing at all but a play of light – anything extraordinary that tickles my camera the right way. Let’s have a look.
In the north of Italy we were intrigued by this image. Who comes to drink here, skunk, anteater or something else? Crystal came off the bridge over the Soča river and declared to watch out for the piece of cake. Clearly. Here they are, goofing around on the 500-year-old olive tree root in the shape of a chair in Piran Minorite Monastery. I normally don’t like such locks but this one was alone on top of the Piran walls declaring “Today – tomorrow – the day after tomorrow”. Who wants to see them will find them everywhere. I posted one from Piran, this one was found in Ljubljana 120 km away. Both are saying the same thing: More love letters, please! This setup in Ljubljana had me grinning. Slovenian basketball frenzy taken to the next level. Another grinning moment. I missed the guided tour of a Tuscany garden on an open door day and found this in a (former) chapel. Outside the same chapel that day. A clear demonstration of what actually helps our food grow. In Pitigliano we discovered Liliana’s garden. I need this on my shirt. Found in Piran. In Lucija not far from Piran they have the dark side with beer, hamburgers and rock’n’roll. Haven’t succumbed yet. In Italy nobody reads much, especially if it’s in English, but my camera does. On that same open-door day in Radi. Hidden talent in Maremma in its yellow phase. Do you see what I see? The water and its reflection under the bridge have formed a rectangular shape that appears to be attached to the plant in front. This one is dedicated to Bushboy. We have them here too, the cicadas. Nature, the great ongoer. Everything is good for something. Some things stand out as if just waiting for me to pass. Ahh, so much work and studying and then forgotten or lost like this! I could have taken it and tried to find the owner… But it’s mom who is taking found things with her. Mind your heart!
