This is a much simpler and softer image than I've been posting recently, but there was something about the arrangement of these poles against the soft grass that appealed to me. It's not a 'wow' image, but I did think it was worth posting.

On a totally different matter, and several years later than everyone else, I finally got around to adding my RSS feed to feedburner.com. If you'd like to subscribe, you can do so here.

Yes, feels to me like a summers day and the sea is just beyond that grass, have no idea if it is but I want it to be :)

Nice capture. I am looking forward to similar scenes as I head to the east coast next week. Love the soft focus on the edges of the image. Is that pole for handicapped birds? :)

This picture has a really nice soft summer feeling. I like the warm tone and the dark edges.

Simple but significant. I like it, also to see that you see small signs of life, sometimes we all handicapped ;).

This had a real wow factor for me. I have a true appreciation for black (brown)/white photography. As a philosopher, I view the handicap pole as in today's society, some handicap parking is not worth using due to distance from the store entrance (like out in the middle of nowhere). I'd truly like to know your thought on this one.

Is this a path for the handicapped? I guess you would need a lawnmower first if you'd want a wheelchair down that path ;-)

That's how a world will look like few hundreds years after nuclear apocalypse :) Small reminders of human species swallowed by nature.

Thanks everyone, and the path that the sign on the pole refers to is a few feet in front of the grass ;)

Excellent find David; of course it was worth posting it.

Excellent shot. Very simple, but powerful at the same time. It really caught my attention.
