My wooden history book

The history of my neighborhood is displayed in its wooden fences and houses and benches.

The wood is old now – silvered and softened by the sun and rain.

Wood holds history in a way that concrete never can. Each rusted nail, each patched repair, tracks time.

My neighborhood is a wooden history book.

  1. Bassa – Your perspective on things is so refreshing. You are so right about the fences, I will go and sniff them differently today to read their stories. – Thanks – DogDaz

  2. Yes Bassa…you are right! That’s very true that wood holds history….therefor they look quite artistic!!!! 🙂

  3. Bassas, you live in a wonderful place. We know it is wrong to chew history books but it looks like there are some good things to chew in these photos.

  4. Sweet Bassa I really enjoyed these pictures. One of my favorite things is old barns, buildings and fences. These are great pictures! Hugs and nose kisses
