It’s time for another Brenda Photo Challenge! The current theme is Wood. Where would we be without this magical material that brings comfort to our lives? I found a lot of lovely treasures made of wood during our Kentucky trip this past fall. (Please note that all of the photographs below have been altered with textured backgrounds.)
There is just something fascinating about wood Shaker boxes, with their beautiful form and function. Many years ago, hubby and I took a hands-on class to learn how to make these unique containers, and we can attest to the difficulty in their creation. I took this image at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill during a demonstration. The camera settings were f/5.6, 1/30 second, and ISO 800.
An interesting design graces the back of an antique oak chair found in the first floor hallway of the Beaumont Inn, located in Harrodsburg. With its ornate carvings, I suspect that this chair is one-of-a-kind! The camera settings were f/5.0, 1/60 second (with flash), and ISO 500.
