One gloomy day not long ago when I was prowling around outside our house looking for something to photograph, I noticed a knothole near one of the rusty hinges on our backyard fence gate.

    An excellent shot, Monnie! So much to look at! I love the textures and designs in the wood, and then the rust and shape of the hinges. So simple yet so intricate!

  • Thanks so much, Mary!
