Reinterpreting Architectural Space & Everyday Objects

Last weekend I was out taking pictures of everyday things in our area and found this rusting farm implement.  

I am forever fascinated in the presence or gestalt objects create by the shadows they cast.  There is a rich interplay of the thing itself, its' shadow and the surface it is cast upon.  The shadow composition creates a different way to appreciate the vernacular farm implement and reinterpretes it as a composition.

 I am struck too by the space inside the curving metal fingers of the implement.  The collection of curves creates a space with a concave roof with a grassy ground surface.  It's an unlikely space for sure but one worth appreciating.
