In this part of the world, boats generally don’t stay in the water over the winter. Our sailboat right now is “on the hard,” as they say, perched on its cradle, wrapped in plastic to keep out the snow and ice. The marina uses big blocks of wood, roughly chopped from 8″ x 8″ lumber, under the keels of the boats to support their weight and provide a little cushion. In the summer these blocks are stacked up on pallets. I was struck one day by the visual texture of all that wood, and this picture is the result. Now, as the snow is falling outside my window, I find this image invokes the lazy warmth of summer. I hope you enjoy it as I do!
You can join in on the photo challenge! Pick any image you created you can label with the letter W. Show us water, weeds, or wrinkles. Here’s how to participate.
- Post an image on your own blog or website.* All types of images are welcome. If you have serious equipment and serious skills, that’s awesome! If you snap pics on your phone (like me), that’s also awesome!
- Post a comment on this page with a link back to your post. If you post a comment that includes a link to your blog, I will add a link to your post below.
- Check back over the next week to follow the links. That way you can see what other people did with the theme and join in the fun.
Olga Godim has a cover for the letter W featuring a magnificent wolf! Check it out here.
And this week we have another image! Actually a whole set of beautiful photos on the theme of the wishing well, from The 59 Club. Stop over and visit them!
*Just so we’re all clear, you post your photos on your own site, which means you aren’t giving control to me or to anyone else. We’re all invited to view the images you post (and comment if your site allows for comments), but nobody has the right to use your images in any way without your permission. Got it? Great!
