Just ’cause you’re following a well marked trail don’t mean that whoever made it knew where they were goin’.

We find the strangest things around the Wabi-Sabi Ranch. Who would think to put together sunflowers, shotgun shells, and a bird to make a wreath? Somebody did, that’s for sure.
The boogie board, on the other hand, makes sense. We’re not that far from the beach. A boogie board would be a good thing to have at the beach.
So far, we’ve found two signs. I showed you the Craft Supplies and Country Gifts sign in my Discoveries post. I’m not quite sure what this sign is about. Quite a few of the letters have fallen off, but it was something “of Old” and apparently they had ICE. I can’t imagine they had a store out this way. There is so little traffic that business would be a bust.
The crab crackers are my favorites of the latest finds. Back Creek is, of course, the creek where our dock is located. We haven’t done any crabbing yet (no time for it, or for learning how to do it and what to do with the crabs once we’ve caught them). But it will be handy to have these crackers when we do get around to catching a few crabs. I like the image, too. The umbrella and sky are reflected in the glass table, giving the whole thing a watery look.
I think I mentioned yesterday that M and I freed the old truck bed from the weeds and vines. I was thinking of using it as a sculpture of some kind, but M is finding it handy for hauling things around (he hitches it to his lawn tractor).
I never really looked at rust until I started following Terry’s blog, Mobius Faith Imaging. He’s doing some really cool experiments with blur now. Go have a look. While you do that, here’s another shot of rust.
I’m not as talented with rust as Terry is, but there’s so much of it around here that I thought I should try a shot or two.
My favorite subject of late involves water and light. We have so much of both here on the Eastern Shore that I have loads of opportunities to experiment with it.
That’s it from the Wabi-Sabi Ranch for now. Thanks for stopping by. It’s been raining off and on today. Plenty of water to capture, but very little in the way of light. Word has it that things will be heating up again, and the air will thicken. I suspect that means the insect hoards will thicken as well. Best to get outside now while it’s still cool and cloudy. Perhaps the sun will show up for its set, providing more fun with light and water.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. :)
