Shutter:1/0 sec

The front porch, with a few comfortable rockers, is an iconic southern image. It brings back memories of days gone by, when families would sit on the porch while dinner was being prepared, because it was cooler than being on the house. Many conversations with friends and neighbors took place there.

Although not used as much today, many southerners still insist on having a front porch rocker. It is the perfect place to unwind in the evening, and invite family and friends to slow down and “set a spell.”

  1. Hi!
    I love rocking chairs! These two look like they are just waiting for someone to have a seat and start rocking. Have a great day!

  2. I love this shot and it made me feel right at home. Then I realized it might be because I have the exact same rocking chair. It really is a beautiful shot!

  3. Waiting on front porch,
    two white rocking chairs gather
    evening to themselves.

    Take your pick of shadows:

  4. I would love to be making a much different shadow-of one of those lovely rockers!

  5. What a terrific shadow shot!! I love it — and I love rocking chairs and unwinding. Here in the northwest it’s not as likely to be a porch as a deck, but it serves the same purpose and I do enjoy it! Hope you’ve had a lovely Easter weekend. And have a great week!
