Weekly photo challenge: Unique

A soldered piece created by my dad from farm implements.

This is one of the pieces of my dad’s work that was sold on his sale a year ago. Now that he is gone, I wish we still had this. I know a woman who lives near Marcus bought it. I may have to search for her. He enjoyed doing pieces like this — finding new purpose for things that might have rusted away in a corner. And, so, when I found out that the topic for this week’s photo was unique, my mind instantly landed here. I enjoy its balance and his clever use of functional farm tools as art. It is a pure lesson in looking at the stuff of our everyday lives with new eyes.

  1. My fingers are crossed that you able to secure your fathers work! In the meantime, you have some beautiful memories.

    The first year in my village, a dear neighbour presented me with a Croix de Cathar (Cathar Cross) which he made for me. He is 92 years young and so very sweet. I shall always treasure it and it holds pride of place over my door. Like Armand, a real treasure.

    Thanks for sharing that lovely piece.
