Front Porches are for Rocking


As promised, the "special" front porch picture. This picture was NOT taken by me. This picture was taken by Teresa and she graciously allowed me to use it. Actually, if any front porch project comes about she will be a big part of it as she sees things I don't.

This picture is one of my favorites and was taken on the porch of a bed and breakfast in Eureka Springs, Arkansas when we where there. I have always intended on grabbing this one for the blog at some point. Teresa isn't in to the blogging like I am but she enjoys reading everyones comments.

As I stated I will be out of pocket for a couple of days for posting pictures. I may be able to comment but I am not even sure about that.

I hope everyone has a great Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. See you when I return from the Carolinas.

LOVE THIS....

That right there is my ideal front porch with plenty of room for friends and family to pull up a rocker and have some sweet tea. It isnt Cracker Barrel is it? :)

Have a great trip Mike!

Mike,
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. You have some really wonderful photos here. I too, love the old front porches, and despise the high rise. And I got several chuckles while reading. The references to John Denver and This Old House...we could be related!
Thanks for the kind comments. I'll hope that you'll visit me again! HAve a great time in the Carolinas. I'll be interested to see YOUR lighthouse photos!

Teresa...Great photo! It's very soothing. Plus, it's black and white, so I like it even more. :)

I'll have my tea minus the sugar, thank you. :)

That is a great shot that Teresa took, they reminded me of crackle barrel chairs. I wouldn't mind sitting there while waiting to be served it looks so relaxing!

Great shadow and DOF. I love series' of things. It does remind me of Cracker Barrel Restaurants.
Lets sit a spell and have that sweet tea. Ahhhh....

I love the shadows in this. The chair chados for sure..btu also the photographers shadow as well. I don't know if it adds to that artistry or not...but I enjoy seeing evidence of the artist in pictures. Like peeking behind the curtain. I always check reflective surfaces in photos for the same reason...looking for a glimpse at the person behind the lens.

Have a safe trip, Mike

Wonderful porch. I have a porch but not with a roof so I can sit out and watch the rain or get out of the sun.

Elaine said...

That's a lot of rockers! Nice shot Teresa. Have a great trip!

Mark said...

Nice. I can dig it.

Just like Anna, the first thing I thought was Cracker Barrel.

That's not to take anything away from this photo, though. You'd have to have price tags hanging off the chairs to truly have that Cracker Barrel flourish.

Moksha, I really had to search hard, but I think I finally found the photographer's shadow (or part of it, anyway).

Great black and white shot, Mike. Another good sittin' porch.

Lori said...

This is such a lovely photo. It makes me wish I was sitting in a rocker on a porch somewhere right now! I like the black and white too.

Nice perspective and contrast, Mike.

Nothing more typical on an American porch than rocking chairs. Here in Brazil, no porch is complete without hooks for hanging hammocks - same kind of relaxing movement...
