The packers come today and so my daughter and grandsons will be ousted from the house, and tomorrow they move. SadSadSad
The Nursery has also be packed up and this is all that remains of the fence that held the gate.SadSad

But there are silver linings
..............I get my daughter and her lovely family all day and overnight SmileSmile
.............and eventually I will get some pictures of the demolition and re-build of the Nursery SmileSmile

But for now some Nursery photos with blue as the theme
I've never uploaded a letterbox picture before and I am just wondering if it will get ignored, shouted down or whatever ................so I will watch this space SmileSmile

I like a letterbox crop. It cuts out lots of extraneous details and concentrates on the subject, in this case, blue.

It really looks like you peak between the boards of a fence.

That is so wonderfully different Helen, excellent composition, if a little poignant.

LOL...so funny...'cos before reading your descrip, I thought, "Oooh...great letterbox crop!" I kid you not. Those were the EXACT words in my head. Then when I read the end of your write-up, I was like, "Nnnoooooo..." GrinGrinGrin

As always, you have a very unique eye and once again it translates into a wonderful shot.

By the way, I love your positive spin on things with the silver linings Smile

I love it Helen; to my eye, it's three totally different images put together and the fact they are different sizes works really well for me - having read Andrew's comments, couldn't agree more! Smile
