FSO - April Fools Day

The brief for this week's topic is pretty broad.  There is no assigned theme - it's our choice of "favourite all time" from our Assignment History Page.  I thought that was pretty cool, thinking it meant to just repost your all time favourite shoot out.  Then I read it again and realized it meant to choose your favourite topic, from the 108 past themes and have another go at it.  Mind you, we can combine two topics if we want.  I think I'll have another crack at Old and Weathered as I love old stuff.

I'm preparing this in advance on Sunday night,  as I have a busy week and weekend coming up - my daughter-in-law's 40th birthday celebrations.  Visitors, trips around, party, party, party.









This last shot isn't hereabouts.  It's a couple of hours drive from here at least but hopefully I will be making a repeat visit there this week.

That's it, folks.  Got to get some sleep - work tomorrow!

  1. Good night, Pauline!
    I like old and weathered too - the tree is gorgeous, but I like all the rusty bits too.
    Have a great week with your guests and celebrations!

  2. This is another great set. I particularly like numbers one, two and four. Worthy of a post to themselves.

  8. Oh, Pauline, I loved every photo! The pieces are not only old and weathered... but also filled with their own stories. Thank you for sharing your gems with us!

  12. Love the stuff - how far is the boat from water? Water more substantial than the two puddles in the photos, that is.

  16. Old and weathered is a great theme. I guess all the why's and how's tickle our imagination. I love that old tree - look like something out of Tolkien's world...
