People of the Allotments

By clevercloggs
one from the series.

Possibly not to everyone's liking but the light in this greenhouse drew my attention. Especially the light in the back against the polythene somehow took my fancy.
I upped the inside of the buckets so to draw your attention to these. i understand these buckets are meant for growing tomatoes. These spiral bits of metal are used for tomatoes to sling and swirl themselves upwards like nature's pole dancers..

I can see why the greenhouse fascinated you Robert. The light at the back through the draped polythene would make a crop on its own!

Love how tubs are being recycled, the smell when those tomatoes are in full swing will be phenomenal!

nice image Robert, just after I remark on the neatness of your allotments, this is a lot more "rustic" than the posh glass greenhouses, but it gives great light.

The makeshift cross on the left made me think it was a police crime scene tent before they start digging for the body...Wink

I do hope you got some images of that fabulous-looking back wall!

Dear Kath, Ron, Leo and James, thank you for your comments.
It took a bit of tweaking to get the circular roof exposed so that it would not compete with the buckets.
That big bag of artificial fertilizer was toned down too, just give all the limelight to the buckets.
I am happy you appreciate the effort that went into this image just to get it looking as mundane as it now does.
