Joinery

The angles and texture of the joists caught my eye this cold and overcast afternoon, and I plan to come back in the early morning one fine spring day when the low sun will very likely outline the grain of the wood in high relief and ivy leaves afford contrasting color. Much effective photography, I am learning, consists of picking a scene--and planning ahead for the best light.

Your photo brought back good memories…I went to high school with a couple of Joists. They were a bit grainy in the afternoon light as well. Carl
