Round Robin Photo Challenge - Wooden

The Round Robin Photo Challenge this week is Wooden.

Kiva, who authors the blog, "Eclectic Granny" chose the subject. She said: Merriam Webster defines the word "wooden" as: 1. made or consisting of wood. 2. lacking ease or flexibility, awkwardly stiff (e.g., wooden performer, a wooden speech). A picture of John Wooden or anyone named Wooden qualifies.

Our White Birch Tree, which is very much wooden, intrigues us with the designs in its bark. They are made by the natural peeling and striping that is peculiar to the beautiful birch family.

I see two wooden penguins frolicking on an icy wooden skid to a wooden sea in this etching. Wooden you?


All the participants are listed at Round Robin. Visit each one for a great Saturday morning visual delight.

I see it after you mentioned it and how cool is that?!! White birch trees are sooooo pretty. I remember as a child peeling off some of the old white bark that was coming off a tree and using it to write a note one. Then I left it at the base of the tree. Hmm Wonder if it's still there?

Hahaha ! that's really strange what nature can do !

The greek language sounds very melodious a little like Italian, it really doesn't fit to such unfriendly people !

Birch, my very favorite. I can not pass up the truck pieces that lay on the woods grounds.
It just has a feel of - Do something with me"
Thanks for sharing...

... Pamela. What are you smoking? There's only one penguin looking up at the batwing flying above .. and it's going to swoop down and grab his fish.
Or it's full of other penguins flying in for a visit. :D

JK. You did a good job. It totally looks like a snow scene all the way down to the little lines and rocks. Too cool. Did you find this in your tree JUST for this assignment, or are there other etchings in the bark?

Kiva said...

"Wood" that I noticed the penguin! I turned it sideways and found a guy in Ray-ban shades! Fun entry!

Karen Funk Blocher said...

Oh, that's really neat! I love finding patterns in wood and bark. Well done!

Steven said...
