Our assignment this week is to provide photographic evidence of that which is ordinary, everyday and mundane but yet soothing, beautiful or otherwise pleasing to the soul (my interpretation rather than a verbatim description of the task at hand).
To keep sparrows and other small birds from nesting in our furnace exhaust, husband fashioned a crude chicken wire cover to prevent them from swooping in and potentially clogging the pipe. Time and Midwest weather conditions have transformed sleek, dull gray metal into earthy colors – alive with texture! – in vivid contrast with Home Depot White.
I somewhat enjoy the resulting look of this combination of forces: thus, the photo.
