I love the ends of cut logs. The smell too but that’s beyond the scope if this log to represent. A few images will have to suffice. Needless to say, this subject can produce endless permutations. Fun to work with.
Sorry to bore everyone with another faucet picture. But this was so amazing I had to get the pic. All I did was crop and boost the contrast on this high-def shot. I recommend a handy little app called “rotate and crop” which does exactly what you think it might do, along with functions for adjusting brightness and contrast.
UPDATE: I added a severely cropped B&W version. (Using Simply B&W, one of my go-to apps for simple conversions like this.)
