My World Tuesday: At the Shop

Tool fence

Wrecker

I noticed these objects of art while my car was undergoing an emissions check not so long ago. The top image is a fence made of cast-off tools. The fence is outside the office to the mechanic's office. The sport's car in the bottom shot was getting a little work done while its antique relation stayed out of the sun and out of the spotlight. I expected ol' Gomer Pyle to come round the corner and offer to clean my windshield.

  4. That fence is a work of art. Somebody is very creative. Lovely shots.. and a great eye for finding and showing them.

    The word verification is "bough" and I think you should take one. ;)

  7. If I'm not very much mistaken, the "aging relation" is a 1953 Ford Pickup with the flathead V8. And a very well maintained/restored specimen at that. Can't see enough of the car to tell what it is. Looks like it might be a sprint racer though.

    Nice work in any case. Love the "sculpture"... my kind of art!

  13. just watched an old black and white movie last night from the 1930s and appreciate how much cars have changed. Imagine driving with no air conditioning?

  25. Who says junk is useless? A wonderful world of reuse, recycle and repost (this post hehe)!

    Here down under, we say, "someone's trash is another's treasure". Surely the fence owner here has an impressionable state of art.

  26. Gollly Miss Sandy,these are some mighty interestin things you have discovered. I shur glad you showed em to us. Golly.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would have to say that is a mechanically correct photo

    ReplyDelete
  28. if only people are as creative. we could be enjoying what seems to be trash into works of art.

  30. Sandy: What a fun show with the old truck and the tool art, very interesting.

  31. I love that fence!

  32. I like the composition of that first shot and am thinking of being careful of tetanus, LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want a fence like that!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's quite a collection of box end, combination, open end, and adjustible wrenches and quite an assortment of other objects. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sandy, what a beautiful post: both unusual and interesting pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the first one as well.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great shots! I like the composition of the sports car and old truck. The recycling of the tools makes for an artistic fence. Just shows what a little imagination and skill with a welder can create. There is a sculpture in one of Frederick's parks that is made from old parts (probably farm machinery).

  38. You certainly pick some great subjects. loved the first one.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I bet that mechanic has artistic ability! The tools make such an interesting photo!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Great shot of an interesting piece of work and the contrast of cars makes a good shot too. You have a mechanic with a difference.
