Team Up Thursday



This week I chose the theme - Wood:

First up is Cat


Wood. What to do with Shayne's theme of wood. I had all these texture type pictures in mind with bark etc, or a wooden cross, and then I just snapped this one at the front door almost by chance. And it's proven to be the winner for the theme. I like the line s in it - and the roundness being ecchoed

How stunning is this pic? Pretty darn good for 'just being snapped'!


And mine:


Choosing a theme from last weeks photo's wasn't easy - there wasn't much to go on.  So i settled on wood (from the fence that Cat's son was climbing).  I thought it would be easy to get a pic of wood - not so much!  However, I spotted this tree on our way back from St Francis and got hubbie to stop so that i could take a few pics.  I took some in colour, and then also about 4 in B&W.  I thought the B&W one would be the breath-taking on, but no - the colour one is.  I'm sure if i had to photoshop the B&W they would be quite remarkable, but no fiddling allowed.  I do love  this tho as it showcases perfectly the stark beauty of the Eastern Cape right now.  We are still experiencin a severe drought, so not green green - but rolling hills abound and nothing for miles.  How blessed I am to be able to live in this beautiful part of South Africa.

Thanks for looking!

as mentioned on Cat's blog: Well done "dreamteam" - love wood in each way - I am a little "addicted" to wood - maybe its because its so "natural"...
Love both photos and think "wood" is a theme for Marcelle and me :)
Ladies - you're BRILLIANT!
