It sure is nature art. This would have been good to have people guess what it is, a mystery object. Because I have never heard of one and did not know what it is.

we love it... it's arranged perfectly... sometimes art comes automatically and it attracts our eyes...

Tigger said...

Ginny's right about guess the object - perhaps you should start a link up day when we post a guess the gadget picture, for all those weird and wonderful things we encounter, or have in our homes, or see in flea markets.. even when we don't know what it is and want someone else to tell us.

Great photos - loving the light quality.

That fruit picker reminds me of that outdoor game with a ball and things that look like that picker. I have no idea what the thing is called or what the game is called.
Love that blue sky behind the clouds.

Hello,

I have never seen a fruit picker, the sky does look beautiful.
I love the shadows of the leaves on the fence too. Great photos, enjoy your day!

This is all new to me!! I would have never guessed. Now, I have to Google and read more. Fascinating.

And artfully composed in photo.

It is beautiful... I always watch our sky and say if we had seen it in a painting, we would not think it real.

Although when you said fruit picker I recalled having seen one (or something similar) long past... but would never have guessed without that prompt. Anyway, it does make for interesting photos! YAM xx

I had to research a bit. Most google results were to "purchase" one. Some of these are called harvesters. VERY interesting. And such a unique post today.

Gorgeous! I love how you find beauty everywhere.
How I'd love it if you were here to capture the extraordinary in what I'm (obviously) missing.

No brain fog apparent in these great and creative pictures. I hope your brain fog will go away soon because you are so creative and talented. And observant. I love the idea of taking these photos. I hope you will feel better.

That sunshine and blue sky just make any picture look better.

Love the shadows of the vine against the old fence slats.
Love the fruit picker too.
Today the sky is hazy and smokey from the fires up north. It seems the fires never stop. Praying for a good rain to clear the air and dampen the land.
Doing my usual 4 hour stint with Lynne today and then hopefully I don't do anything with her until the next Friday. Next Thursday she will turn 81, but I will celebrate on Friday.
Great post today

I am so surprised that no one knows what a fruit picker is. They are so perfect for getting the unreachable apples, nuts etc. down. My mother in law used a big coffee can nailed to a very long stick or pole to pick the really high apples from her tree...Coffee can works without having to purchase anything..(:0)

We used those on our pear trees, which grow so vertically. Lovely photo!

The light playing on the subject makes it look great.

I always thought a fruit picker was a human - just goes to show!

Hello Sandra,:=) The way you displayed your fruit picker against the fence makes lovely shadow images. It's girdled by the shadow of leaves, and the blue Sky is lovely. There are orchards on the farm, so fruit pickers are essential for the fruit at the top of the trees.

Only yesterday I took some shadow images created by the deep plate of water I leave out on the balcony for the birds. It was shimmering on the ceiling of the balcony, making beautiful images. I really enjoy taking shadow images, or seeing different things in clouds or wood, shadows on rumpled sheets, anything really, it's great fun.

What do you use the fruit picker for? I was thinking avocados.

These are great! I always love your shadow photography, especially the leaves in this one.
