Morning BB and thank you for once again surprising me with one of your creative post. Now I'm going back to look again to see if I can count the age rings.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Nat said...

Clever shots....but hope there are no spiders lurking in that wood :-)

Patti Lacy said...

Art in everyday objects.
LOVE it!

Copyboy said...

So many sexual comments come to mind. haha. Seriously those are incredible close up shots.

A girl needs 2 Talk said...

Wow! Bet! If you hadn't told me that was wood, I'd have thought pictures 1, 2 & 4 were rubber tyres. :)

Kimberly said...

My favorite is the black & white of course but several great shots of wood!!

Joe Cap said...

Do you ever tire of us saying what great photos you take?
I did not see a spider, it must be an itsy bitsy one.

Out on the prairie said...

Good eye for an interesting set of pics.Looks like old power poles cut up.

Susan Deborah said...

Now wood is something that really captures my attention. It can be in myriad forms, you know. The pictures here almost scream aloud the age of these trunks.

I meant to visit you earlier but was caught up with things. Thanks for coming by my blog and taking time to write your insights. And many thanks for the following. It is much appreciated.

Joy always to you,
Susan

Gaston Studio said...

Wow, those logs must have been sitting there for a very long time. Wonderful catch, Betty.

Ally said...

Very cool. For some reason, these images remind me of when I was a kid and in school we learned that the age of a tree is represented in the rings around the inside of the trunk.

I, being a naughty girl, connected the title of this post to Hump Day. Oh well.

I DO, though, love you pictures of WOOD. Very complex details. Love the close ups.

Georgina Dollface said...

I love the smell of aging wood and the way even in death, it becomes an ecosystem full of life with bugs and fungus and ferns. Great photos! - G

Brian said...

Boy, if you only had a woodchuck!

Zuzana said...

Very interesting images, full of texture; very rough and rugged, bringing about a sense of fall and wood burning in the fireplace.;))

Sarah said...

Writing Without Periods! said...

Theresa Milstein said...

I didn't know where you were going with this from the title, until I saw the pictures.

Apparently, my mind wasn't on spiders.

Crystal Cook said...

Those are such awesome photos Betty. I've never seen anything like them before! :)

I've missed your blog!!

Baby Sister said...

I love these pictures. :) They're awesome!!

Tracy said...

I suddenly have a hankerin' to build a fire.

Michelle Faith said...

Where did you find that wood, that is some old wood. If you would do anything with that wood, what would you do with it, would you burn the wood in a camp fire and would you roast some hotdogs? Thats what I would do with that old wood, guess you take its picture and make it cool ageless wood.

Phoenix said...

That reminds me of a being and child and climbing over the stacks of wood we kept for burning in the winter. I can still smell it....

baygirl32 said...

Nice Wood - sounds kind of wrong though

Nezzy said...

Great shots girl. It's great to find beauty in unusual subjects isn't it?? I just wanted to sing that silly song I sang as a child, "Woody, Woody Woodpecker, waltz with me....... OK, I'll stop. I really can't help myself.

God bless ya and have a super fun day sweetie!!!

Betty Manousos @ CUT AND DRY said...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I see rings.
And dead people.
No wait - just dead trees!

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

I didn't see any spiders but I couldn't help looking for them. Along with everyone else, I guess

Old Kitty said...

Oh BB!!! Such beauty in decay!! As always you find the perfect symmetry of nature in the most inconspicuous of places and things! Wonderful! Thank you!

Take care

Gigi said...

You have the most artistic eye! I wood (get it??) have never thought to take a picture of wood. You did and it's awesome!

Daisy said...

Great shots, Betty. I would have been on the lookout for spiders in there. Looks like their kind of hangout. :-)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Did you take those? Very cool how you can take ordinary wood and make it look so interesting. :)

Dreamfarm Girl said...

love the texture, lines and curves. i have always loved the beauty of natural trees. You captured it so well.

Marlene said...

I'm so glad I tuned in late in the day. I hear enough about morning wood. It's nice to see some evening wood.

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

The first one looks a bit like a face. Did they cut down Grandmother Willow?

That's a Pocahontas reference for those that don't live with a 5-year-old.

Liz said...
