My Picture Of The Day. Water Buckets

Water buckets. Historic Jamestown settlement, Virginia.

  1. With those oversized rope handles and the fade at the edges of the picture, they don't even look real. They look miniature.

  2. Not only as functional water buckets, they would look wonderful in a garden setting too.

  3. Fabulous photo Tatyana! I love it's beauty and what it provokes in thought. Wonderful contrast of the fence with the bucket's wood and their similarity. Great old buckets with their rope handles. It was hard then and still is for many today to collect water. I am so appreciative of just being able to turn a knob and water flows up from 175 feet! ;>)

  4. That header makes me smile and smile

  5. Ooooh, LOVE those water buckets!
    Extremely ruggedly handsome.
    Were they only to admire, or were you able to purchase those as well?


  6. Great, though they do look heavy. No wonder baths were pretty infrequent!

  7. Thank you everyone! I am glad you like these buckets. Hermes, you are so right - they took bath 2-4 times a year, and washed their hair once a year. The body smell made some people faint.
    Annelie, they were a part of an exibit.

  8. They are lovely, I woodent mind a few of those, I bet they would sell well too if someone started making them.

  9. I agree with the above response...these buckets would be a great decoration piece for a yard or garden

  10. My shoulders hurt.

    Thank God for the almighty PLUMBER.

  11. Great photo Tatyana, I love the buckets. Do you think they'd let me 'borrow' one - it'd look so nice in my Japanese garden?!

  12. Lou and I bought an old bucket on our honeymoon that looks much like these. Thirty four years later, it still sits in our kitchen!

  13. This i a great shot Tetyana. I would love to see it in black and white too.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
