  1. This is fun, Jane, I love the clever title. Also, the sense of humor that is so evident in “Wheat and Barn” – it’s like a can-can dancer sneaking an extra kick into the lineup. πŸ™‚ “Mossy Mile Marker” is my other favorite for those brilliant, colors and the straightforward composition. And you know what? I think all of that moss is actually lichens, even the green. Lichens surprise me all the time. I like the flat-across-the-frame look of the last photograph a lot, too. Just light plus shadow equals textures, right? While I’m at it I have to say that “Barn Boards” and the first barn are both beautiful. πŸ™‚

  3. I loved this unique theme, Jane. Wood has so much character, and your photos did a great job of demonstrating that. I liked the humor in the barn skylight. I liked the different expressions of wood you shared, and the Mossy Mile Marker was gorgeous. Great wood pile too. What I especially liked here today were the two driftwood photos. You did an excellent job of capturing the movement in the wood, and it really looks like ocean water. Thanks for sharing your incredible gift.

    • Thank you, Jet. Great to read your reaction to these. I really appreciate it.
      I’m amazed at the patterns, rings and character that different types of wood exude. You’re right about the waves in the driftwood! πŸ˜„

  15. Many photographers would love it if all mile markers were as colorful and textured as the one you’ve shown, though practical-minded folks might miss seeing the numbers on the markers.

  32. I really enjoyed these, Jane. They are a departure from what I usually see here but so attractive in their own way. I like looking closer at thing and I think perhaps my favorites the wheat and barn and…hmmm, not sure. The driftwood shot is fun because it could be an overhead shot from some types of land formations. Sometimes the beauty is in the details as these all show. There’s something sad about abandoned and decaying buildings, especially (to me) farm buildings, but they do make marvelous shots.

    • Thank you, Janet. I visit these barns in Mendocino every visit and I just love the details and also doing close ups of nature’s patterns. You’re right, without any perspective, it could be a landscape from above. Agree, the old barns and buildings that are just holding on evoke a melancholy and mysterious mood.

  34. Wow! After a second look, wow, outstanding. These are all beautiful. “Barn Boards” is very appealing somehow, although it looks like one of my early efforts to build a treehouse.
    How does the mile marker work? Green is north, and the gold/turmeric-colored side is east?

  35. These are all quite wonderful Jane. I especially like Mendocino Barn, the cypress, and the mossy marker.
