The Photo Friday challenge this week was "Open". Wow, that is seriously up for interpretation. Lots of thing physically open. Lots of things feel open. Things can look open (wide open spaces). It came as no surprise that I had no idea what to photograph. And thus, I didn't submit my photo on time. Oh well.
I woke up this morning at my usual 7:30 am to the dogs wanting to take their morning potty and decided to give it a whack. Not the morning potty, but photographing something "open".
Just opening a random door is pretty boring. So I knew the subject of the openness needed to at least be interesting. That doesn't leave many opens in our house. But, just outside our garage, sitting on some custom made rollers, is the oldest member of our little family. Behold, the Rusty Bucket.
Her/His story is a long one. We unearthed her/him right before Thanksgiving from her/him slumber in the woods. It took about 5 hours, 4 vehicles and 4 people pushing to wedge her/him in the corner of our driveway. She/him/it needs a new name by the way. Rusty Bucket is just a place holder (suggestions are welcome).
Rusty Bucket is arguably the most interesting object that has doors that is in our possession at this time. I also kind of like how the vents on the hood look like flared nostrils. This is the first of many old vehicles we will be restoring. We thought it would be best to start off with something relatively easy. And easy really is a relative term. Because there's nothing easy about the process. Or cheap for that matter. Once we have this vehicle completed perhaps we'll move onto Steven and my favorites, a mustang '69 Boss 302 for Steven and a '69-70 Chevelle SS for me. Someday...
SOR is actively editing the photos from Adam and Marianne's maternity photo shoot. Hopefully we'll have teaser photos to post soon!
Everyone enjoy your weekends. I'm going to go ride my bike.
