I was disappointed not to be able to get out and take some photos somewhere other than at home here in Oatlands. It’s been threatening to rain all day and this morning I had to go back to work. All of my photos for this challenge have been taken at home both inside and outside. I thought if it does rain I can go back inside at least. Here are the photos I took for this challenge.
I quite enjoyed taking these photos today as it gave me a really good chance to study the different timbers used and the finishes on them. My shed in the back garden and the fence at the side of the house are very old and worn. I admired the work that had gone into making the monkey, panther and boxes. The picture frame is a beautiful dark timber and the biscuit barrel is inlaid wood. The wishing well was hand made by my friend Leigh’s father and he gave it to me as a gift. He loved making things out of timber and was very talented at doing so. The artist’s chest has been stained in a lovely warm colour. I’ve always thought my front door was an impressive entrance but then it was originally made for the bank manager that lived here in 1926 after the place was built as a bank and residence. It’s funny because I was so disappointed about not being able to go out and find some interesting subjects to photograph but in the end I got quite caught up in what I found here at home after all. The time has simply flown by and I can’t wait to find something else for the next challenge that I hope to take part in.
