Old Cart

As I walked along the long driveway from yesterdays shot I came across this old cart. I'm sure in it's day it was used to carry the apples that during harvest season.

"Surely the apple is the noblest of fruits." -- Henry David Thoreau, Wild Apples

Wonderful, Randy. This is a most atmospheric autumn image. And Mr. Thoreau surely had that apple quote right.

Beautiful rural image Randy, autumn colours are lovely.

Another fantastic photo. Frame it and hang it. Or, heck, sell it at an art festival. It's superb, Randy!

Thoreau had great insights with his quotes.

The cart was a wonderful find and fits the old orchard scene. Happy Monday and "Don't upset the Apple Cart!"
