#331-365 Times Gone By

Here are three relics from the past, the day was a bit overcast so there was no point having the sun dial in focus, as the shadow was too indistinct, so I opted for the Pennyfarthing that the Pub was named after, I felt that they blended well together.

As Karen and Tammy have already guessed, the third relic is the one operating the camera, such a relic in fact that in my dotage I missed getting a shot, of something Sally saw that I missed out on and didn't hear about until we got home.

That was a Mystical Aborigine Weather Rock, If it's wet - It's Raining, Moving - Windy, White - Snowing, Shaking - Earthquake, Too Hot to Touch - There is a Bush Fire, and if it turns invisible - It has Been Stolen. I personally think it wasn't Old Timers disease that made me miss it, I just wanted an excuse to go back - Soon.

Well, your focus was right on. The foreground blur raises the eye to the subject. Yes, you can go back again one day, but you got a good subject here.

You absolutely must go back as I want to see that mystical weather rock! Not to say anything against this nice capture but you've caught my imagination with your story and I want the rest of that picture too (greedy little thing, aren't I!)

Another great image and great commentary! Too bad we didn't get to see the third item - LOL! I am sure you will be heading back soon for that wild turkey...
