One thing I really like about “rubbing shoulders” with you photographers is that many of you, as I, seem to enjoy taking pictures of objects or situations, which action or similar one has been known to cause raised eyebrows or other puzzled expressions by those about who may be lacking the photography gene. For how to explain the fascination with peeling paint on ancient doors or the lean of ramshackle building or the light and shadows caught in a chunk of wood?

Jerry partially chopped away the trunk of a dead tree near our front deck yesterday, and when he stacked the wood in such a way that this morning clear honeyed light spread over it, the pieces sprang of beauty, and I was fascinated by their lines and light and texture.
