Some of you may know I have a personal blog, Sometimes You Get So Confused, in which I chronicle everyday things I do, here and there. And you may also know that I like to walk or run (mostly walk, these days) trails, and that my area is rich in places to do that.
In June my husband and I walked the entire length of the Perkiomen Rail Trail twice (twice, because for each segment, you have to retrace your steps to go back to where you parked…). This project meant we walked 40 miles along a scenic creek, mostly in the woods, but we also went through a couple of county parks and some towns.
One of those places was Schwenksville, PA. The trail ran behind buildings for a mile or more and there was lots to see. (If you want to read the blog post I did on this section of trail, look here.)
This house was one of the places we saw along the way. I loved the house color in contrast with the orange chair, and the dappled sunlight patterns almost hid the presence of the soccer ball under the chair. I snapped the photo with my phone. It’s just a photo I think has some interest to it, and I love the colors.
Agree! It is wonderful photo
Kind of funny, at first I did not notice the soccer ball, and then that was the most interesting part to me, saved the photo from just being “pretty”, I think.
That is a pleasing scene. I can just see those colour combinations popping up in your art.
I wondered how it would turn out when I took the photo – I was mostly attracted to the blue/orange look, and those shadows were interesting how they changed the colors too.
I thought this would be about soccer lol. Its an amazing photo btw.
Thank you. I never played soccer (it got popular after my time, one million years ago) but I always liked the look of the ball (kind of dumb, I know). And in this picture, no soccer ball, the photo loses personality, just a nice house sitting in the shade, I think – seeing the ball, you just know somebody in the house likes the game. Now there is a story to the photo, makes me smile.
