Purple and Other Colours…

But first…

DSCN3651Here’s a ‘nice’ picture of mine taken last October. I call it ‘Purple and Other Colours’, being the straightforward sort of chap that I am. I think that thing on the right, hanging on the wall, is something called a Virginia creeper – I’m not too hot on plants and gardening sorts of things. I like the way it seems to be poking out a tentative feeler along the clothesline towards the hanging sheet – as if it is attracted by the colour and is about to make some sort of friendly contact…
The colours are nice aren’t they? I can take no credit for those, all I did was notice them. What about the bright red clothes pegs holding the sheet? I particularly like the white rectangular feature on the wall, the composition and colour balance wouldn’t have been half as effective without it; it looks like the place where a now demolished outhouse with whitewashed internal walls used to stand. That bird box is just about in the right place too isn’t it? Perhaps there are tits or wrens in it?… I wish one of them had been peeking out of its little round hole – that would have made the picture absolutely perfect…
