Friday Photo: Roses & Work Clothes, Shippensburg

The basement of my parents’ house is an area that my mother does not allow guests to see.  The walls are covered with crumbling horsehair plaster; the floor is cement; the lights are bare-bulb dim.  Here, however, is where my father’s farm clothes hang beside a bouquet of dried roses like a symbol of my parents: worn and warm, smooth and safe, together.

    This is a beautiful photo that should be framed.

  2. I just wish it weren’t as grainy… wah! I LOVE it though!

  3. Ha – just thought since I sent the last post – I think I’ll frame it anyway. I actually don’t know why I blew off the idea before. Thanks for the encouragement!
