    MPC #164 - Wood | 9/12/17 - 10/15/17

    I'm pretty sure happy feelings like this are illegal in 47 states. On to a new MPC!

    Topic = Wood
    Get your mind out of the gutter!
    We had "Forests" a couple MPCs ago and that got me thinking of this topic. I'm thinking of things made of wood, interesting uses of wood, or close-ups of the material itself.

    RULES:

    1. Photos must be taken within the time period of the contest.
    2. You may submit 3 photos during the competition.
    3. The contest moderator will choose 5 (or 6) photos to be voted on.
    4. The winner will get a happy feeling in his/her pants. (That is a rule by the way, not an option.)
    5. In the event of a tie, the contest moderator will have the deciding vote.
    6. Winner will be the contest starter/moderator for the next comp.
    7. The winner has 3 days to start a new contest or 2nd place becomes the new winner.
    8. And have fun.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    There were a lot of really good shots submitted of groups of trees. However, I was looking more for close-ups of the material or uses of wood. So please don't be offended if I didn't choose your shot.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Nice deck! I need to replace the deck boards on mine as well. Sorry I didn't choose this shot. I thought about it hard since it is along the lines of what I was looking for in the MPC topic. However, there is just to much going on in this shot that feels like a distraction from the interesting angle and wood grain pattern you can see in the stairs.
