365-140 For no apparent reason

It turned out to be a decent day today, so my wife and I decided to take a little walk after lunch. Since the streets around our house are heavy with traffic and we didn’t want to travel far, we decided to take a walk in the city park. Yeah, the same one I talked about in previous posts. The scraggly rundown park. It’s still scraggly – only greener now. And it’s still rundown. But there are a couple “nature trails” and we thought we would explore them a little among other sights in the park. My 365 shot of the onions was taken in the “Main Pavilion” in the park. It is basically a two-story pavilion built on a slope with a large stage on the upper level that’s used for an occasional play or 4th of July event. Walking around the outside walkway on the upper level I saw the onions hanging on a nail. Obviously placed there by someone for no apparent reason I just thought it was interesting for some reason. On the trail we discovered some kind of history center that I didn’t know existed. Newly constructed pioneer type dwellings used for educational purposes I imagine. All shots with Pentax K20D and DA17-70.

    Wow, these are pretty cool. That onion knot is pretty insane. I wonder how they tied it together without the stems tearing?

    Nice collection. Really like the feather one – the contrasts between the hardness of the stones withe light soft feather – looks great in b & w. I like the onions too, that’s something that would grab my eyes. Really interesting.
