My World Tuesday

For my world Tuesday I made this collage of some pictures I made yesterday in one of our favorite parks along the river. On both sides of the trails are only willowtrees. A lot of them are knotted already and the toes are used for matting chairs or floor covering. I will show photo's of the knotted trees later this week.

 
For more my world pictures go here.

Hello Riet,
I cannot get over those trees. They are incredible looking and making chairs with them!! Can you show us one?
I love your composition. Are you a professional photog, or do you do this for fun? Either way, you are fantastic.

Wauwww wat een geweldige [knot]wilgen Riet, een lust voor het oog. Je kunt van de takken prachtige dingen maken inderdaad. Zelf heb ik een grote treurwilg en elk jaar maak ik van de takken een aantal kransen en andere leuke knutsels, staat enig zo hier en daar in de tuin. Mooie kleuren hebben de foto's.

Fijne avond nog,
Lieve groet Josephine

Wonderful college of pictures. Beautiful

Very unusual trees, to me. I don't think I have ever seen willow trees. I like the sepia technique you have been using. I might try that on my fences shot for Friday Shoot Out.

Hi Riet!

I've always wondered what those trees were, as I saw so many in northern Italy, and now I know they are willow trees! I'd like to see the chairs made from them.

Wonderful willow trees, the path between them calls to me to come and walk. Your new header is beautiful Riet.

Oh my! how beautiful! The trees remind me of mascots with a bride walking in the middle. I'm glad I took a peek. Happy new year!

Dag Riet,
Mooie foto's, maar met die wilgentenen worden toch geen stoelen gemat. Zag afgelopen zomer wel bij Kleine Profijt van Hoekschewaards Landschap dat ze er van die kooiker dingen van maakte en een buitenbank. We hebben er nog een artikel over in het Magazine gezet. Die jongens doen dat voor Geven om Jong leven. De artikelen die ze maken verkopen ze en de opbrengst gaat naar dit doel. Toch mooie, hè!
Fijne avond nog en lieve groet, Marja
