Five images.

Back to the Old Barn. I continue to be wowed by the persistence of red on the screws and nails, while the wood has mostly just sighed and given it up. The softness of the surface in the last image makes it far more evocative of fabric than wood.

    It is amazing to see the threading effects if the aged wood. You can see the delicate features in the wood. The knotting pulls swirls in the threads. Soft grays and rusty reds that lightly pop out are pretty.

    full size and as much as the screws and nails persist with the red, i love the greys and whites of the timber. Then again that hinge takes some beating heh heh!

    Love the textures and the sharp surprise of rusted nails – great essay. Isn’t it a joy to see the magnificence in the most innocent of subjects? Well done.
