It is time to start seriously thinking about starting the yard work and cleaning up the gardens...mine are a mess!
For a higher resolution view go here.
Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.

Great composition, beautifully put together. These garden tools look way to clean to me....... it is obviously time for you to work in the garden.
1 Apr 2009 7:23am
@"Marie" :-): :-D You are right...they are brand new. Thanks.
Like coming from a sales brochure, really great! Composition, illumination, and colours are wonderful! (Please show the same items after usage in a few weeks.)

Imaginative composition. Love the colours.

Very nice composition. Very creative. The light and exposure are great.
1 Apr 2009 11:42am
Fabulous magazine quality composition, so detailed and creatively observed.
1 Apr 2009 11:54am
OH LJ! Please come work on my garden while you have your tools out!! Nice light and crisp!

@Betsy Barron: Lol...Trust me you don't want that. The only things I grow with any success are weeds. :-D
Now your talking, getting our hands dirty! Good image which tells the story all by itself.

Fabulous shot. Incredible detail. Superb processing.

@Viewfinder: Ah you remember those...I couldn't find any. They only had just plain old beige or black. Plus these are really cheap imitations. I would never pay for authentic crocs...they are too expensive and I think they are really ugly things. I think they make me look like I have clown feet when I wear them. :-D But they are good for knocking around and running out the door.
I wonder how your garden looks, because all these tools look like brand new to me :)))

@Monique: The gardens are a mess. We have to redo everything, especially in the front. We had a really bad oil tank leak that destroyed our property and took about 3 years to clean up. My entire front yard and driveway was dug up to a depth of 14 feet right up to our foundation. It was a mess, a nightmare in fact. We finally were able to re-plant our lawn last fall just before winter so we have grass instead of mud for the first time since 2006. With these new tools I am ready although I am not fond of gardening and yard work at all. :-D
wow it seems an advertising, really an amazing still-life
1 Apr 2009 1:38pm
As long as it's just thinking, not doing, I'm ok! ;-) Good luck with your giant job!
1 Apr 2009 2:15pm
1 Apr 2009 2:16pm
Well, you certainly have everything there to make it work! Even the beautiful pink flowers (Begonia?). Good luck! Won't be too long before all the tools and gloves take on a completely different (dirty) look.
1 Apr 2009 2:18pm
Very nicely lit & executed shot. well done.
1 Apr 2009 2:21pm

gran cpompisicion y muy buenos los detalles
1 Apr 2009 4:26pm
It is getting to be that time of year. Nice Saturation of color.
1 Apr 2009 4:28pm
The Spring approach, Laurie, is the perfect mix of small gardener ... the flowers can come .. you should have put your camera with ..and you are gardener-photographer .. ....
1 Apr 2009 4:29pm
wow..sharp and dramatic processing !
1 Apr 2009 4:34pm
The pic tell us clearly
1 Apr 2009 5:32pm
Excellent still life. Around here we really have to attack the nice days because they are few and far between.
1 Apr 2009 5:35pm
Great shot. Those tools look new and shiny - I bet they won't be that way for long :)
1 Apr 2009 5:43pm
it seems that those shoes are ONE :D
1 Apr 2009 5:48pm
Magnifique composition et quelle jolie lumière.
1 Apr 2009 6:34pm
So that is a very nice photo of your gardentools!
I know it is time for working in the garden.
Below I see a very nice photo of yourself!
Nice to meet you, Laurie.
greetings from Friesland,
1 Apr 2009 6:45pm
Really nice colours and sharpness here. I also like the way you included flowers in this shot.
1 Apr 2009 7:17pm
Hello Laurie ! It's a fantastic univers in your pages ! I love this composition, with perfect colors and light !
1 Apr 2009 7:37pm
Your gardens may be a mess, but your tools are shiny and clean and new. I guess the result of the combination will be somewhere in the middle. Beautifully composed and colors :)
1 Apr 2009 8:31pm
Oh, very fine composition and light! Love your shoes!! :)
1 Apr 2009 8:35pm
Superb shot.. love the details, very clear and sharp!
1 Apr 2009 9:19pm
Catalog perfect, enjoy your earth. What a nightmare. best...jerry
1 Apr 2009 9:22pm
Everything looks pretty clean. My stuff is filthy. Good shot.
1 Apr 2009 10:03pm
your ready for spring now, nice shot
1 Apr 2009 10:07pm
A very sharp image with beautiful tones. Love the theme, too. I'm not sure what the bottle is for -- but then I'm not a gardener. I'm sure it deserves a place there, although for me it seems to disturb the lines of the other objects, and seems to fight for the eye's attenion. Just a personal view, of course.
1 Apr 2009 11:19pm
@Andrew Gould: Thanks. The water is for me...I drink a lot of water. I almost always have a bottle of water with me, especially when working up a sweat doing yard work.
1 Apr 2009 11:26pm
Beautiful light and great composition. It is amazing that you are about to go gardening and still had the time to compose this picture. I happen to agree with Andrew's comment. I do find the bottle a bit "distracting", however, I do think that it could symbolize the hard work that it is involved in gardening.
Great shot! Very creative and the lighting is so well done. You should soon show us some of the results of these tools!
1 Apr 2009 11:35pm
Looks like spring gardening! Love the color..the composition...the clarity. Excellent!
1 Apr 2009 11:39pm
2 Apr 2009 12:10am
I just started mine... but got a little more to do as yet...
2 Apr 2009 12:11am
Une très belle composition thèmatique.
2 Apr 2009 1:13am
WOW this is simply brilliant, beautiful composed and such amazing clarity, 5 stars
2 Apr 2009 1:18am
Such a beautiful composition! Not only is it an art to shoot this type of still life, but it takes a skillful eye to set it up as well. Nicely done.
2 Apr 2009 3:22am
This would make a great window display, or a poster size image of this to promote garden tools.
They look so nice new, would hate to get them dirty.
I could use a pair of those for my yard work, but I agree how ugly crocs are but everyone is wearing them.
2 Apr 2009 3:28am
Outstanding ! I love the colors and contrast in this beautiful composition !
2 Apr 2009 3:47am
A lovely composition Laurie, plenty of details.
2 Apr 2009 6:47am
Jolie composition !
2 Apr 2009 7:57am
Wow! Awesome photography Laurie!
2 Apr 2009 8:02am
everything seems new, then I wish you plenty of courage and passion in gardenning
2 Apr 2009 8:16am
Superb clarity, great composition with beautiful colors.
2 Apr 2009 10:17am
you seem pretty optimistic that the snow is done! (i was too until this last weekend...)
2 Apr 2009 10:38am
Some very smooth light modeling going on here . .
2 Apr 2009 12:56pm
what an excellently styled gardening image. We're still a good month and a half away from the snow melting and the ground thawing but I always look forward to that time of year. Excellent clarity in your image.
2 Apr 2009 2:25pm
très belle composition. Y'a plus qu'à se mettre au travail !
2 Apr 2009 2:39pm
Awesome looking still life.
2 Apr 2009 4:20pm
I don't think those tools have ever touched soil. No scratches. They can be happy until you plug them into beautiful dark dirt.
2 Apr 2009 5:19pm
Preparing yourself for the spring, isn't it?
Very good focal and colors, I like it very much.
2 Apr 2009 6:09pm
But they are so clean !! Great shot tho'
2 Apr 2009 7:52pm
Great color and rhythm.
3 Apr 2009 1:37am
GORGEOUS!! beautiful color and detail -- lovely lighting too!! this could be a home and garden ad!! :) so i am finally here in nyc!!! loving it here... this is just the place i needed to be!! currently living in brooklyn house-sitting although that will end in may... not sure where to then, maybe here still or astoria, who knows! anyways hope this finds you well cheers neighbor!!! :)
3 Apr 2009 4:09am
@dj.tigersprout: Welcome!!! I'm glad to hear you made it. I hope you find something more permanent without too much difficulty. I don't really know much about housing in NY other than it can be small and expensive. I know Brooklyn has some wonderful neighborhoods. My niece was living there up until a few weeks ago when she relocated to Denver. She liked her neighborhood (I don't know exactly where it was).
Wow the colour-scheme is amazing! Great composition!
3 Apr 2009 4:30am
I can't wait to start gardening myself.... those look ready to go to work! So clean and perfect. ;) Not for long.... (grin)
3 Apr 2009 5:35am
You have good view to prepare a montage of nature morte. All elements well located, clean and sharp. Me too, I'm ready to open the season, but nature Mother wait sometime...
7 Apr 2009 2:03pm
Always loving your compositions in studio! The lighting is beautiful! and the color are great, very beautiful with that light!!!
