I've always loved the straighforward simplicity of old ladders; beautifully captured!

Sandra said...

my first ever viewing of a 'ladder stack'.. cool... and the old seed store looks almost identical to my uncles old ice house from the distant past

Revrunner said...

Yikes! I'm hoping it has been a while since anyone has attempted to climb that ladder in the feed and seed store.

Karl Demetz said...

William Kendall said...

The ladders in the orchard look quite peculiar.

Andy said...

One thing about firemen... they really take good care of their equipment.

Giga said...

Fire truck is great. Well, the old ladders were applied. Regards.

Kathy said...

That truck is a beauty. I wouldn't want to be the one who left a fingerprint on it!

Pamela Gordon said...

That firetruck is a beauty! I like all the ladders leaning together in the orchard.

George said...

I like the way the ladders in the orchard are stacked to keep them off the ground. That old fire engine is really neat.

Hi EG CG, Great photos! The first one, fire truck, so reminded me of my picture of an old truck in Ketchikan Alaska posted on my blog back last October 2nd. I hope you will take a look if time permits http://john-s-island.blogspot.com/2014/10/north-to-alaska-2014-day-6.html Old fire trucks are awesome! Have a great day, John

Great, fun captures for the L Day and I do love that fire truck!! Hope your week is going well!!

RedPat said...

I've posted that same fire truck before. It was in a St Patrick's Day Parade here a few years ago. Love your ladder shots, EG!

Stephanie said...

I like the patterns it creates in the last image of ladders. It makes for an interesting composition. Love that red fire truck!

Ginny said...

Each picture is very special and lovely. The ladder in the middle picture looks like part of the building, I would think it would be very hard to climb. I have not seen anything like it.

Bethany Carson said...

Love the old fire truck! The ladders we use at the orchard we pick at have a third leg for stabilization.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Fabulous "L" finds! I have never seen ladders stacked like that before (in the apple orchard).

Love the apple orchard picture, the ladders are similar to ones I have seen in olive groves.

I like the ladder shot.

Felicia said...

Jack said...

These three ladders could not be any more different. I particularly like the bright red fire engine and its ladder.

Chandra said...

Hi Tina,
I am reminded of the song, "Penny Lane", for that Fire Engine is a "Clean Machine". Lovely photos!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Rose said...

I am so glad I didn't have to pick apples from a ladder! But I love this picture.

Krishna/കൃഷ്ണ said...

Ladders a nice theme

thanks

Jim said...

You take very good pictures, Ms. TG. I love your fire truck' I am thinking that it is a 1934 Ford truck.

My post today has a 1934 Ford Three Window Coupe picture. We used to race on like that, hopped way up.

Anita said...

L for Lovely too!
Lovely pics :)
Ladder is a wonderful thing!

Maggie said...

Excellent L subjects, CG, all so very different from each other yet stunning in their own way.
The orchard shot speaks to my heart as Normandy is known for it's apples and apple by products.

Margaret Adamson said...

Fantastic images for the ladder theme

llandudnopictures said...

Three very different images of the same thing!

Kerri Farley said...

Amy said...

Ladders are lovely! I enjoyed your post. :)

Taken For Granted said...

Love your photos of the hook and ladder truck, and of the ladders. That feed store look like it is in need of some serious repair. Fine theme. We all need a leg up sometimes.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Ladders make me nervous! Great shots...

Terrific series...love all the shots♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/lone-pod/

Mari said...

Love that firetruck!

Deborah Weber said...

Such wonderful photographs! I keep returning to the one of the orchard ladders, thinking successful ladder stacking is a skill I probably couldn't demonstrate.

Malyss said...

What a beautiful fire truck !
I like the last picture, it says memories of past spring and hope about the next one .

Lowell said...

You were climbing all over to get these shots! I love that truck!

VP said...

Three great pictures, but the first one is my favorite!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Cool, ladders! I've become very good at climbing ladders. :-)
