"Bared Planks"
(Chesapeake Bay, September 2007)
Paint stripped barn in the afternoon sun, worn but still all solid lines and angles, softened by the play of shadows and foliage of the nearby trees.

"Wicker"
(Chesapeake Bay, September 2007)
Chairs waiting to be occupied, a staid afternoon in the shade, light making it's way in where it can, suggesting a potential for it to come streaming in, and animate the whole scene.

"Porch Perspective"
(Chesapeake Bay, September 2007)
The water looks as thick and gleaming as oil, with the descending sun causing a funnel of orange light to add the texture and intensity of contrasting lights and darks.
