I like this photo because of the juxtaposition of the curves in the rocker with the lines on the fence. The rocker curves mimic the greenery - the leaves of the iris plants. The shadow of the rocker makes you think of long days relaxing with a book and a view of the garden. My friend has a small yard full of interesting things. It is always fun to take my camera to her house and look for subjects to photograph. If you are selling your home, make sure that your yard looks inviting and a place to relax. If you are thinking of selling sometimes soon, get out with your camera and take as many photos of your yard as you can. Remember to stage the yard before you take the photos to ensure that the weeds, tacky pink flamingos and wet clothes on the line are not in the shots.
