The master of the pun

Shot with Canon FD85 f/1.8 on my Sony NEX-6, so equivalent to 127mm given the 1.5 multiplier for APS-C sensor. I had to stand well back. The Sony doesn't have in-body stabilization, so I used a fast shutter. The "legacy" FD lens on its mount adapter must be manually focused, but focus-peaking works fine. Open shade, no flash of course.

The items' price tags were virtually illegible due to sun-bleaching.

You really are the master of the pun.

The two elegantly weathered wooden items have nothing in common except their texture, until you unleash the "jeux de mots" of taking "fall" in two different meanings and put a smile on our face because of a strictly semantic similarity.

So what is it exactly that I admire here?  A photographer or a word-smith?
