He maketh the wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder..Psalms 46: 9

I love the interesting designs and texture to be found in firewood. The original picture I shot today of split wood tucked inside a tank in preparation for our wood stove...

I experimented with the image turning it different ways to fit into a mirrored image... I think it resembles a cartoon cat warrior standing with a load of wood and wearing a split helmet on his head.. You might see something entirely different:)

This brought back memories of my late father in his retired years who loved to carve objects from wood as his hobby ... My late uncle, Dad's older brother also had a hobby of hunting for driftwood with unusual forms and designs... He had an extensive collection.. Dad would sometimes join him in their treasure hunt. One time Dad found a humongous wood burl that he carried home from his property and had it made into a lamp head...and then added glass eyes so that it looked like a face...He called it "the thing."

    This is so fun and creative. Funny how creativity runs in families. All the men in my family paint the most wonderful paintings and my sons can draw. My mother is a self taught photographer and is really good. Keep these cool creations coming.

    It's easy to see that you get a lot of your creativity from your father as well as your mother, Andrea!! This is very artistic and beautiful. I always wished I could carve, but never had the talent for it. Great shot!!!
