Ring-a-dingy/ Macro Monday

Anybody home?

I didn't try ringing this bell so I don't know how how loud it rings. But it has a string on it so I think it IS used.

I think you're a little bit too shy. I would have rung the bell! How did you resist the temptation?!

Hilda said...

Now that's a different kind of cow bell! ;)

A most unusual "cow bell."

That is a very neat cow bell. Now we will never know if anybody was home. Pull that string!!! MB

I have been having problems with my computer and haven't been able to visit or make comments---I hope THAT is over. MB

I love your sunshine post. MB

Wonderful shot! Love the rust on the cow and the bell echoing the red paint, and the contrast between the rough wood and the smooth metal! Even a couple of strands of spiderweb!!

George said...

That is a neat bell. I agree with the others that you should have rung the bell.

Rose said...

No one is home here! I like this!

now that's a cow bell! When we went to the olympics we bought cow bells and took them with us. I didn't know it was a tradition to ring the bells as the skiiers crossed the finish line. It was a lot of fun.

What a clever bell, I agree with the others tho you should have pulled the string.

I love that bell. I would have rung it. I have all kind of bells,but none as differant as that one.

Jarart said...

Maybe they ring the bell to call the cows in. I have a bell like that only it is a horse on it instead of a cow.

Lorac said...

That is a great find. I think I would have had to ring the bell too though! Nicely done!

I would have definitely rung the bell, just to see who came running!

That's a very cool bell! I would have tried it!

Cute one, EG... I've seen 'cow bells' before--but none like that one. NEAT!!

Hugs,

The cows on grandma's farm wore little bells so we could find them in the woods. I guess it's not unreasonable to a business establishment to ring a bell to call customers to din-din.

Love the photo!

Interesting bell -- did it ring attention to someone coming to help you and you didn't need help? I would have tried it too! I wonder why they allowed it to rust?

Michelle said...

What a great bell. I'm not sure I would have been able to keep myself from giving the bell a little ring a ding.

That's a nice detail. The imperfection of the bell is charming.

What a fun shot. Would have worked well for Ruby Tuesday as well. Ring-a-ding-ding.
