Weekly Photo Challenge: OBJECTS

The challenge this week is to come up with photos featuring objects. Well, it’s too cold here still to venture forth. Fortunately, a while back we visited a place that has its own name, but I think of it as A GARDEN OF OBJECTS. Nothing but objects, one stranger, more eccentric, odder, weirder than the next!

Here’s one of its entrance gates (yes, it has lots of gates as well as objects), bidding you welcome to —- what?

Welcome to what?

And inside, here’s one greeter:

Tin Man

I have a blogging friend called The Tinman, but somehow I doubt that this is he! And here’s his friend:

The Engineer

Here’s one of its multitude of objects, this one shiny:

Shiny Object

And this one not:

Portrait of a Lady

What species of duck do you think might be fooled by THIS decoy?

What kind of duck is this?

And I’d say that this woman just plain has lost her head — but in fact it seems to be her body that she’s lost!

Pretty Lady, Awful Sense of Taste

This wild and crazy mishmash of objects is the smallest sampling of what you’ll find if you come to western Massachusetts and visit The Three Sisters Sanctuary in Goshen, a tribute by an artist father to his daughters, one of whom died young. He’s created (with his own hands) a garden for remembrance, meditation, solstice and equinox celebrations, weddings and concerts and — you name it!

I can truthfully say, there’s nothing else quite like it. The sanctuary itself is one great big unique OBJECT.

      Wild, wild, wild.
      It got overwhelming long before I explored it all.
      Thanks for visiting, Stef! I’ve been mostly absent lately, but will try and reenter the blogosphere soon.
