Elaborate Door Retrieval- J'adoor
There are certain things one must have especially if they present themselves as free and accessible.
I've had my eye on this door for awhile now.
Didn't take much convincing Mr. Coryosity to go on a field trip to the rust farm nearby.
The trusty four wheeler used for hunting... hunting junk too
It's in our sites
where rust intermingles with nature
he set about sawing some incredibly strong steel while I went on a photo shoot.
you may have seen this impressive can pile before in an earlier post.
He's still hacksawing...
This is actually spongy rotten rubbery plasticky stuff, not fine porcelain.
That's why I'm only photographing it and not bringing it home.
like tie dye
he's still sawing away.
I think he sweated away at it for almost a half hour.
Sorry I didn't get a good photo of the mosquito landing strip on his back. There must have been 20 or so enjoying a meal as he toiled.
What a guy!
I did help a bit holding the door so the sawing went more easily.
Spring has sprung
a tisket a tasket a rusty head gasket
loaded and ready for the ride home
but wait, there's more junk to photograph!
Check out that color.... heat patina
junkyards can be rather phallic
Ok, so I posed this, I'm entitled to some artistic license right?
The pink in the sidewalls doesn't show up so much here.
artfully framed against an old appliance
A theeng! removed from that piece above this.
Speaking of posing...
Old Alaska Road Commission piece... before they changed to DOT
It finds it way to our place... notice the quaint outhouse out yonder.
used for storage these days.
This will greet you when you pull up to our driveway now.
and now to balance out all of that rust and junk, here's what I was messing around with on the soaking rainy Sunday the day before.
Vintage Mexican weaving and vintage Indian embroidery and relic Ukrainian charm with sari trim
