staring at the flames and talking…

‘And there is quite a different sort of conversation around a fire than there is in the shadow of a beech tree….dry logs have in them all the circumstance necessary to a conversation of four or five hours,…with a jug of wine between the legs. Yes, let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.’ Pietro Aretino, translated from Italian

old, sawn rounds…

lying in the woods. Maybe someday, someone will finally split these.

Photography: Calm Morning Cropped

Calm Morning

I originally took this shot on an early morning as I prepared to fish. The placid water, old cattails, rocks, green grass and the old logs combined for a rustic yet calming feeling. But those logs had been cut at some point and don’t ask me why it grated at me. Everything else was natural, but the log although worn on its sides had been tended to with a saw at some point. Small detail I know but it bothered me.

So I cropped out the logs for a more ‘natural’ look. And low and behold, I miss those darn logs!!!

Photography: Log Cabin & History Too

This past week, I came upon a log cabin that appeared to be in the process of being assembled. This was not a kit and there was going to be a definite need for chinking. This was someone’s project. Ongoing or abandoned in the process, I don’t know. But, I loved looking at the interior and envisioning someone living within the confines of those log walls. Save for the metal roof, the construction looked quite rustic and old. My photos don’t do it justice. Log Cabins have quite a history.
