When it comes to the elements, I’m definitely drawn to water the most, but I’m also quite a tactile person. I can never resist stroking a gleaming wood carving, in a park, or museum. Tree bark often attracts my finger tips, especially the coppery hue of the Tibetan cherry. Cee’s fun foto challenge this week has me looking at photos related to Wood. It surprised me to see just how many uses we have for it.
