I shot this photo a month or so ago. I was so taken with the mixture of plants I don't think I even noticed the numbers until the group of pictures were downloaded. So here's my first reaction to Randomness....random mixture of plants. It does appear that a big pot was randomly filled with a random mix of plants with no thought to color, textures size etc. etc. and the numbers stake haphazardly stuck in the mix because....well, just because. Can I accept that? Usually not, but for now I won't OOPS it to death. I will say, however, that it is a nice group of pleasing textures, good color selections and that 'Numbers Stake' is pitched at the perfect angle for a OOPS persons photo shot! I'm really proud of myself for being able to not OOPS it to death....yes, I could have said more.
Then there's 'The Big Picture'!!!!
Surely, I noticed the numbers when I backed off the ZoomZoomZoom!
But maybe not, since I was being rushed a bit to get out of the heat and inside the shop where so much more 'Randomness' awaited for this OOPS person to make sense of.
Have you ever been challenged to make sense out of what appears to be thrown together, stacked in disarray, sorted, stored and stuffed with random abandonment in places that don't jive? It was a nightmare and a dream come true all put together by someone you would think didn't have a clue about the Rules of Composition and absolutely no Sense of Purpose!
Junkology....a shop of Purposeful Randomness!
Look!!! I think they are Kinfolk!
I've spent so much time researching and writing about my Georgia Ancestors these days, that I am constantly looking for and photographing 'Scenes and Memorabilia' that relate to their places and time in history. This handsome couple will most likely appear as relatives on Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors sometime soon...but not with 'Random' abandonment!
It has been and continues to be an exercise that fits my Over Organized Personality perfectly!
Here are the Links to the latest posts about my
3x Great Uncles....Sons of John Ichabod and Lucy Eunice.
PS...I think Over Organized Personality Sensibility is inherited....all those Johns, all those Baptist, and all those kids.
