If it wasn't for splinters, I like rough fencing that isn't sanded and painted although I'm sure it will look nice when it's finished too. I like the way you shot this.

That was a new way of looking at it - I really liked it.

I worked in a sawmill for a long time. When I saw this shot, I thought of the many stacks of green lumber which were always there, and wanted to turn my head sideways so the boards would be oriented the way I was used to seeing them!

I like the repeating patterns.

I like the arrangement of the wood—captivating composition. The patterns on each piece keep one's eye moving.

My father has worked with wood all his life, and his love has rubbed off on me. The first thing that strikes me here is the smell of the sawn timber. I love the depth that you have created with this perspective.

I can feel the vibrations of the saw, tearing at the very fiber of the tree.
