Pairs

Marianne from East of Málaga challenges us this October to find photos of pairs.  She defines it: A pair is a set of two things used together or regarded as a unit.

These lighthouse feet made me stop and look twice – the rust in its reddishness turns deterioration into art.  The lighthouse is set on a big concrete block so its feet were at my eye level as I wandered around it.

And a pair of nights ago I photographed a pair of bottles and two pairs of eyes on a pair of sons.  We were in a restaurant provocatively named Me and Mrs Jones (that’s not a pair).

Marianne likes us to spread the blog love, so I’ll tell you I loved a poem I read here.  In fact I printed it out and stuck it on my fridge.

And I read a blog about amazing historical embroidery at the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, including a video demonstrating how women kept their arms out of the way of crinoline skirts, here.

  1. Fantastic photos, Trish – yes, it really IS deterioration turning into art 🙂

    Thanks for sharing two links – I love that poem, too – and Emily’s blog – and was fascinated by the embroidery post. Two great blogs shared and both new to me – well done!

    • Thanks. And I’m glad you liked the other blogs. I love having these bits of knowledge delivered to my home when I least expect them. My life is better for it. And thanks for encouraging me to think of two blogs and tell everyone about them.
