Photo Art Friday, July 6th - 8th


Welcome to the architectural edition of Photo Art Friday.



As always, you are welcome to link up any piece of photo ART you wish, or you can follow the prompt and link up your photo art that relates in some way to architecture.  I have chosen the latter and hope you enjoy viewing the minimalist architecture in these pieces of photo art!






Half tree house, half play house - designed and built with care for the little folk.










Look at those gorgeous exposed beams in the ceiling!  And if you look closely, you will see it is even wired with electricity for late night pyjama parties.











This photo, shot from/through the kitchen window, shows our grandaughters washing the tree house.  At our behest?  No.  Absolutely not.  I wouldn't dream of asking anyone to scrub raw, unpainted wood!  They just felt it was not being maintained properly and asked for a bucket of soapy water with rags and brushes so they could bring the outdoor architecture up to their unusually high standards.   All of the adults in the house had to pick their jaws off the floor!  Adorable - if I do say so myself.




For next week, you can link up a favorite piece of photo art,

or

a piece of photo art that features fencing.  Worded that way, the prompt gives you a lot of latitude!

  15. So who is the talented architect? Very nice and very useful ... and now, very clean, thanks to some industrious grandchildren. You are a lucky lady, both for your half tree house, half play house and for your beautiful Grandchildren. Love the post ...

  22. Love your tree house! I remember havin a plank to the tree branch from the roof of the garage--and if our parents ever saw it, we'd not see the outdoors again until we were 30!
