The theme this week is "Art". Now, I know that this isn't really art to most people... but I love this photo. I know... I'm crazy. This is one of my favorites. Why is it my favorite? Because I'm weird that way :) Seriously though... I love black and whites. I love that it's kind of blurry (something that I didn't intend, but it works). AND... have you ever canned beans? It is a fun process. Something that I enjoy. But it takes a few hours to accomplish the task. So, when I look at bottled fruit or veggies I can see the sacrifice of time and patience that went into it. So, not only is the picture art, but the actual process of canning is an art form to me!

And, canning itself is becoming a lost art! I love this shot too. Very cool.
(sorry about the earthquake fear...I understand!)

I thought its pasta inside a bottle. I love b&w pictures too. Putting in a few hours for this is commendable. :)

Canning is a dying art form it seems, so few people do it anymore when it used to be common practice.

Taking b&w photos is an art. Not everyone can master that skill.

Canning is certainly art - the art of patience, something I'm in dire need of. *grin*

My first thought was bananas. And then I thought, "yum!" And then I went and pigged out. lol

Don't even try and make sense of that, it's Saturday, I don't have to use my brain today. *grin*

Mmmm.....home grown beans. Love when you chew them and they squeak!

I admire a little insanity, haha, and I guess I resemble it too. Ahhh, so freeing!

You are right, canning is also a work of art. That is a very interesting photo. Well done!

Everyone is invited to my Art Exhibition. Hope to see you there.
