    cityscape in wood

    I was trimming the cutting board blanks today... and each time I got to the 'end' cut on the blank, I would stack the scraps up on the jointer (it was handy)...

    still a work in progress, but It reminds me a bit of a cityscape.

    Lori says I should put a finish on it, and put it in the gallery where my daughter in law works. (Her father is the curator)

    ned, when my youngest nephew was quite a bit younger (around 6-8), he asked if he could play with some of my off cuts. sure enough, i checked after he had been quiet for over an hour, and found that he had arranged them in the laundry room, along the seam lines of the tiles. i asked him what he had going on, and he said it was a city.

    I liked it for the shadow play going on, the city aspect just makes a certain amount of sense. So did the nephew ever get back in the shop and build anything?

    Ned,

    A hundred or so years ago I won a PSA photo contest with a black and white photo entitled, "Deserted City." It was made with a couple of the kids wood play blocks, a piece of dry tree limb and high contrast photo paper.

    I wonder if the negative is still around. If it is I may find it in a century or so.

    I enjoyed your sequence and your photographer's eye.

    Enjoy,

    JimB
