This photo was taken on Oct 17, 2012 at about 12 noon.
The location was on the deck rail in my back yard in Bethesda Maryland
The "Take It!" came from the unexpected beauty found in some wood that I am using for a base for a project that I am in the middle of
producing. I was told that the dark lines are from a virus that attacked the tree at one time and the tree survived. The randomness of this trace of the malady which looks like it might have
been penned into the wood to make an abstract painting has me fascinated. As you can imagine each block of wood is different and some do not have any hint of this phenomenon.
The photos were taken at the suggestion of one of those who are kind enough to review my work. In this instance I was "shopping" several of
the blocks and was told I should take photos of each one and to be certain to number each completed block on the bottom of the wood to identify myself as the person who created it. A suggestion,
I am going to take.
It has been a pleasure to share this demonstration of nature. When I have completed the project, rest assured I will bring it to the site
for your review, and I hope your enjoyment.
Thanks for joining us for the current photo presentation. You are cordially invited to return Tuesday, December 4th for a new picture
that we hope you will enjoy.
Wishing you a great day,
