some postcards

two of my favorite postcards from i found this site about 2 months ago and the end results is you send postcards to somewhere in the world and you get postcards from all over the world. i've received postcards from austraila, china, the netherlands, portugal and several other countries. postcrossings makes going to the mailbox fun again!

the awakening (also called the giant)

1980's sculpture by J. Seward Johnson. The piece is 70 feet in length and 17 feet high at its tallest point. Consists of 5 separate pieces an outstretched arm, a hand, a leg, a foot and a head completed with a gnarled beard. it weights 4700 pounds and is made of cast aluminum. The day was dark and rainy, perfect day for a giant waking up!

and another

Tomorrow is my last day of vacation, all my plans washed out by the rain. it has rained all week and has been cold. i was planning to get some yard work done, but instead puttered around the inside of my house. However and there is always a however in life, it was a good time to do some photography.
I walked 3 sides of this barn in the rain and weeds, it was spooky looking and the gray skies didn't help. It looks like the glass left in the window might be old, to me it looks like it has bubbles in it
The much faded red paint and the rusty roof are my favorite elements of this picture
