This hook has the same crook in it that Ann's swan has in its neck in her photo. Interesting!

The curve adds so much visual interest to the photo!

Tash said...

I have never seen a hitching rail. The B&W is termendous. The shine on the hook is perfect.

Yup, the ceremony looked a lot like this when Mr. Brattcat and I got hitched. ( : That's a great new profile shot, Julie.

Carver said...

Great shot. I like how shiny the hook is in the photograph.

James said...

I like the black and gray tones and the bokeh great.

Woody said...

Quite a fine, hand forged hitch there, accentuated by B&W. Most excellent Julie!

zem said...

Great tones. Nicely done.

Ann said...

Nice one.

Like your new profile shot. Did I ever send you the shots of you from the Hawkesbury, I can't remember?

Joan Elizabeth said...

Is this an oblique reference to Valentine?

It's fun coming across references to yesteryear just hanging about like someone forgot they are needed anymore.

I like the new profile shot too.

Vicki said...

I really like the light in this shot. The monochrome effect just seems to accentuate it.

I would not have guessed what it was for. Too many Westerns.

Elegant composition, but looks dangerous :-)

Irene said...

Nice Julie -- the come hither simplicity makes this image a strong one.

Dimple said...

My kind of picture! Very nice capture.
