rust and a self portrait

A few from my walkabout today.

I am considering the psychological implications of the pictures I took today.  On one hand, I am behind a goddess-like image in my self portrait, and on the other, there are these images that portray both being locked in, and being locked out. 

Oh, here is another one from today, where I'm walking under a ladder.  Pushing my luck?  Or letting go superstition? 


  1. I can never walk under a ladder. I avoid them! Like the textures of your photos.

    I like the photos.. Interesting, a bit mysterious.. simple but meaningful.

  3. Thank you, Yvonne, and Sash.

  4. I like theese's the kind of photos I usually take!!

  5. hello barbara,

    i am so behind in my blog visits! i'm glad to be here!

    funny, i didn't think of being kept in or kept out until i read your words. when i looked at the images, i saw circles and spirals, circular steps...

    isn't it the greatest thing to take a stroll with your camera? it's opened up a whole new world to me.

    i hope all is well in your world, friend.


  6. Good to see you here, kj. Ah, what we saw says something about both us I, I guess.
    Yes, walking with the camera is always an experience. :)

  7. I love the under the ladder photo. The composition is wonderful! I'm also a big fan of rust!


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
