I have always wondered what a thing like this means – an old rusty pot on a wooden pole.
Have you ever seen it?
Well, you might have, especially if you ever happened to find yourself in the country.
I suppose that a thing like this might be a tad more difficult to spot in Singapore or New York.
But there’s something else that haunts me.
What is it good for?
I remember I used to see this interesting pot-pole combination in some old movies on TV.
There were these old fences made of wooden poles and pots like these were stuck onto their tops.
Were the pots protecting the wood from rain water?
I don’t know for sure (not that I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep without this information).
But what I know for sure is that it looks very nice in a picture.
And it absorbs various color shades perfectly, see?
Violet – no problem!
Little bit of graininess, way more contrast with some darkened edges here and there and it’s perfect – just like an old picture.
But still, why – WHY is it there?
