JLand Photo Shoot #136

    

Here's the photo shoot topic for this week.  I'm just posting it now, because alerts were down earlier in the week, so I thought I would wait until they were working again, to make sure you all would get this.
 
I think we can still have this done by Saturday.  That's Saturday, June 14, at 11 PM EDT. We're talking almost midnight, an hour before Sunday, for those of you who are getting confused. :) 
 
our subject for this photo shoot is:
 
Two
 
(two cows, two flowers, two cats, etc.)
 

After you've posted your entry in your journal/blog, please come back here and put the address of your entry in my Comment Section below.  If you need an explanation on how to do this, or need to know any other instructions concerning this photo shoot, please click on the link below.

Thanks, and we can't wait to see your photos!

From Krissy :) 

Here's my two of of one thing~two of my three old milk cans.  My third one is a rusty old thing out on the porch with flowers in it.  I've had it since the late 1980's when my stepson, Tim, brought it to me. He had spent a few days with a family member at their farm and found it in an old shed. There's still an empty 7~Up can down inside of it, that Tim emptied that hot summer week.  Tim passed away in November of 1994...the rusty old milk can is very precious to me.   The two pictures here, sit inside the house.  I love them too but not as much as the old rusty one. 

 

Here's the old rusty one....obviously not as attractive as the other two but more valuable in my mind.

I love these pictures!!

that rusty one is neat for sure!! Tim must have been relatively young when he passed away; was it an accident?

(I think Krissy came up with a great theme this week :)

I love old milk tins, I have to say I like the old rusty one the best too.  I did sand & paint mine though it was in much worse condition than yours.  I can see why it means so much to you.

I really enjoyed catching up on your journal.  Your pictures are really neat!  I love old milk cans.  I get what you're saying about the near empty school bus.  Maybe that kid lives at the last stop.
Hugs, Kathy

Oh neat pictures, I love old milk cans. I had one in Chicago, but with all my moves it went the way of everything else.  I can understand your feelings looking at the rusted one and remembering your step-son. I have some items that my Grandmother used on a daily basis and everytime I touch one it makes me remember her....love, Sandi

You know, I've drank milk all my life, and have never seen one of these guys in person before.  You know how I am about rustic subjects and I am fascinated by the different levels of age represented here.  The rusty one is just as beautiful as the newer looking coppery one.  Great entry!!!

I like the rusty one the best!  I had a milk can a friend gave me she painted it blue and put a bunny on it...it really isn't my stlye anymore I think I will make a project out of it this summer.  I also have one my Mom gave me that is sorta yellow and has an eagle on it.  I will take pics and show you some time.
