Oh how marvellous. All the stages of wood! So many beautiful shots here, Julie. Happy Theme Day!

To answer your question - I have British and Australian passports but live in France under my Brit one as it's easier in the European Community.

Wood--it's beautiful any way you look at it!

'Woodn't' I love to have taken these shots? They're excellent, Julie. You really give us a lot to chew on here.

Love the richness of the macro shots. Iv'e got a couple of bark shots of the yew tree , the bark looks so different when the conditions are dry and wet.

I love the texture of the logs much more than the polished artefacts.

Wood, one of nature's best material to work with. You've shown it well in this post.

Love the fist one, it's a good attention grabber!
Fantastic low key but very high contract shot.

Ann said...

The last one is my favourite out of these. I had trouble thinking of what to post. The simple things like wooden posts and wooden boxes didn't even occur to me.

Marka said...

Very interesting and unique. I like it.

Lori Skoog said...

You sure are good at this picture taking!

Woody said...

Very nice! I especially like the lighting on the first.

Looks like "the first pages" of life and the stories to be written about.

Very interesting indeed to see and a brilliant composition for this day.
Please have a nice new month and week as well.

Good variety of wood shots.

Joan Elizabeth said...

What a delicious wood story you've put together. There's a wonderful wood craft shop up in Leura ... I just adore running my hand across the smoothness of hand crafted wood like in your last shot ... but the au natural version at the top is my favourite.

Inverness Daily Photo said...

Most expressive.

diane said...

Great sequence of wood shots.

Lois said...

So much beautiful wood--I love them all!

Vicki said...

Stunning study in wood!

raf said...

Gotta love it, Julie. Every image in your splendid composite could well stand alone as an excellent picture.

Mirela said...

Perfect set of photos... Wonderful!

Hilda said...

Everything is glorious, but it's the first shot that I love best of all!

AB said...

A great collection of photos. The charred ones are really dramatic

Ann said...

This timber utensil is so nice, sugar bowl?

Julie said...

Nice of you to ask, Ann. These bowls were made by my father, maybe 15 years ago. He had bought himself a lathe. He had loved working with wood all his life and these were simply experiments. The one on its side is composed of hoops of Huon Pine that he scrounged whilst on one of his numerous trips around Tasmania. I store corks, shells and seeds in them.

A nice set of photos.
