Only The Good – Hay Bales

Hay Bales

This is my photo for the Only The Good project this week.  It was taken last week on our way from the wedding to the reception, and I took it through the car window as it was moving, so the focus isn’t as clear as I would have liked.  Help me to find the good in this picture by leaving me a comment with what good you can see in it.

The Only The Good project is to get people to look at the world in a different way, to acknowledge–if only for the brief time they do this exercise–that there is good in everything and everyone…to briefly change shadow to light.”

If you would like to take part, you can either leave a comment on this post which focuses on ‘only the good’ that you can see in the photo. If you have a blog and would like to participate you can

“Post an original photograph that may at first seem rather ordinary–a photo in which the good isn’t immediately obvious–and invite people to comment. A brief explanation of the photo’s subject, where it was taken, etc. may be provided. I urge you to use only original photographs so that copyright infringement is not an issue.”

    The gold of the hay bales brightens what looks like a very dreary day! It almost seems to present a brighter future for the dulled houses in the background…

    It was extremely foggy that day, Autumn Song, but every now and then, as we traveled through the countryside, we would arrive at pockets of sunshine. The photo was taken during one of those brief respites, but you can still see the fog in the distance. Thanks for finding the good!

    I can actually almost smell that photo! The scene and the colours take me right back across the pond.

    It was the colours that really grabbed me too, Nicholas. I’ve been seeing hay bales everywhere, but we’re always in the car or on the bus heading somewhere, and I never get the chance to get out and take the photo. Hence the fact that it was taken through the car window! It maybe adds to the texture of the photo though…
