The Wheelbarrow...

I love antiques. Especially old, nasty, chipping, painted pieces. Alan has never quit understood this love. If it looks like it should have been thrown away years ago, I love it, while Alan thinks it should have been thrown away years ago. I bought this rusted out antique wheelbarrow a few months ago with big plans to use it as a prop while taking pictures. Alan just shook his head when I brought this hunk of junk home. After shaking his head at me, the first thing out of his mouth was how much did this thing cost. Can you really put a price on such a gem as this? I just told him it's worth much more than I paid for it. Not exactly true but it sounded good. After months of sitting in the garage, I finally stuck it in the yard and snapped a few shots this afternoon. I personally think my plan was brilliant and it will be a great addition to my photo props. Here's a couple cute ones for your enjoyment. Oh and can I just say that my kids are ridiculously beautiful!!!
