Wood piles




Is it so that piles of any kind looks interesting? If it is so - why does it appeal to us?

I just ordered this book by Leanne Shapton - Native trees of Canada (found it through the Topipittori blog)

are you talking about gradation? I think it's because it's like a sunset or sunrise- or other ways we see it in nature, like the wood pile. Now we like it in 'ombre' hair coloring.

I always find myself drawn to wood and that wood pile is amazing. Image all the years of growth that is represented there.

I recognize the problem: the love for well stacked wood.

I love these photos! I think that piles (of any kind) appeal to us because humans always have a desire to store things - it makes us feel safe. Food, fuel, objects; they all comfort us and make us feel secure. I believe that's what it is.
