At the Allotment - January
Tracey Emin eat your heart out!
I thought this collection of canes, with their brightly coloured protective bottles, could have been called an "Installation" if somebody had paid for it to be "erected" in a town centre.
It's a pity that the bundle of plastic containers are hanging on the fence in the background, but even in a town centre there are usually distractions behind the most important sculptures and artworks, so I think I can be excused.
The coloured bottles are probably on the end of the canes to prevent accidental eye injury, either that or they might rattle in the wind and make a short term distraction for bird pests such as pigeons.
This is the last of the current series of pictures from the Allotments, and the final of the sub-group I've called "Allotment Art"
Desaturated and selectively re-coloured using Gimp.
This series of pictures were taken at local Allotments, which is land owned by the council that can be rented for growing plants (fruit/vegetables/flowers) for use in the home. The land is separated into measured strips, rather like the mediaeval field systems.
I do not have an allotment. I am grateful for the tenants who didn't mind me taking a few pictures.
Picture taken 16th January 2009
Half term etc, so I'm taking a break for a couple of weeks. I have uploaded some "holiday" pictures, but may not be around very often to comment on other people's pictures.
