[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last week we were treated to a guided walk around Topsham, near Exeter in Devon.We were able to go down little paths and alleys that we probably wouldn't have ventured down, if we had just been on our own.
This little corner caught my eye;an old worn out door, which with the addition of the flowers suddenly looked very pretty and colourful.And of course a lot of the houses and cottages do not have gardens.

So as my title suggests, they are making the most of what they have!

Thanks for looking.

Good eye Jean,
One can really see the difference of the bricks of the older building, to that of the newer ones, on the garden tool shed.
It's good to see the colour of the flowers as well as their containers,brightening up this corner of a home,by the shape of the old weathered door,I would imagine the older building was once a barn or a stable.Sharp & clear details,well taken.

Hoi Jean,
Very well seen and captured. I agree, they are making the most of it.
Colors, details and textures can be seen very good.

Hi Jean
Beautiful arrangement of these lovely flower pots with interesting reddish tones of the bricks in BG looks amazing and I agree with RSK about the new and old bricks which adds more interest into your composition.
Best Wishes

Nice shot Jean. Such a quaint image. Beautiful color, sharp detail and a nice pov. TFS, Lori

Hi Jean,

Lovely shot. There are lots of interesting textures captured in the bricks and the old wooden door and the flowers add a colourful contrast. Good lighting and composition.

A very colorful image with fine detail and interesting shapes and textures. A strong POV makes a very creative composition.
Very Nicely Done

This is very nice Jean, a lot of contrasting things to see. The old brickwork vs. the new, the old door vs. the new door, and of course the colorful flowers vs. the drab appearance of the old door. Very sharp, and nicely composed using the principle of thirds.

It's amazing what one finds when we stray from the beaten path.
