Okay, I didn’t actually dumpster dive, but I did hang around “near” someone’s trash in an alley when I eyed these fabulous chunked up, scarred slabs of wood.

Ahhh… the things you gotta do for art!

I did wonder if people were going to wander down the alley and wonder what in the world I was doing… I had a great time, though!

Great use of light to make all of the textures pop!

It is funny what lengths we will go to get “the shot”. Nicely done!

Thanks! I had fun, and I’ve been on a few other sorts of “adventures” in the last couple of days, the results of which I’ll be posting soon. The more I do this kind of thing, the more I like it… the “adventures,” I mean.

Gorgeous tones and texture.

Thank you so much, Karen. The textures were what drew me into these pieces of wood. Up close they’re really fascinating.

I’ve realized lately that some photos in black and white, can enhance the details that we can’t see in the colorful pictures; I’m trying to think about your shots from today in color, but I just don’t imagine them as great as in black and white.
Great choice, and great textures!

I compared these in color and in black and white and agree: the details just aren’t as rich in color.

Great abstract series, I like these very much! And mono is exactly the right thing here. FATman

I’m glad you like the mono. I debated about it because there were some rich colors in the wood, but I decided that the lines and textures were much stronger this way. Thanks again, FATman!
