Canon PowerShot S3 IS
Image taken in rural Arkansas, USA near the National Buffalo River Area.
High Dramatic colors added in GIMP 2 to the already very dramatic autumn scene.
I wanted an image that would just jump right out of your screen, LOL! I think I accomplished that!!
POEM By Wayne Cook
I wish I could move off to the woods,
It’s not often that want to pull away,
But my mind, oh it’s been a hard day,
And only the moments of this image, now relieve,
We all weary of work, and tasks, and….
Well, this old house, looks mighty fine,
Don’t need much, just a place to curl up,
Won’t be no problem, just a bit of rest,
An old thing, that dreams are made of………
This old Arkansas homestead is made from rough sawed oak slabs, and it is done in the board, and laith technique, and style. The rough sawed oak is put up green, and as it cures it woud shrink, and leave cracks. Once the shrinking had finished they would come along with a smaller strip to cover those cracks. You might be asking, why put it up green, then? Well, the answer is…..once the rough sawn oak seasons, it is almost impossible to drive a nail through it.
