Field Furniture

Blogroll Me!
PhotobucketMy friend Lori found this site called field A really nice website dedicated to photography of stuff in and around fields. Here is a photo I took this spring that would go well on the site.

And here is the manifesto: is about noticing the things around us. The things that exist in the small gap between the advertising hording and the television set. wants to get back a freedom of choice, where we decide what is visually interesting and stimulating, rather than being fed the affected images of the advertising agencies. wants to increase the significance of some of the things we take for granted. The ancient and twisted, the rusted and held together with baler twine, discarded trappings of animal husbandry and agricultural that lay strewn across our fields, for instance.
aims to oil the wheels of sanity [ours] by keeping an eye out for interesting images, photographing them and adding a map reference so others may follow. Go out there and look. will entertain submissions from individuals [or groups of people - we’re not proud] [or groups of sheep, for the matter of that, we are ready to be amazed]. Full credit will be given, where credit is due. Images should be sized at 600 x 400 pixels, saved in .jpg format at around 100k and e-mailed to: Please read our terms and conditions before pinging anything to us. is not limited to photography, we are happy to accept submissions in other media, written, drawn or whatever. Though please refrain from sending us any actual farm implements - the back cupboard is full already. reserve the right to ignore anything they feel should be ignored. [see our terms and conditions] is a not-for-profit organisation, funded jointly by Digital Therapy, and the McFugger Foundation for the Arts – just for the hell of it.

Remember: if it ain’t orange, it ain’t baler-twine
