Wood seen as a reflector of light - # 08/103

Perhaps I shouldn't do this on a City Daily Photo...but I have so there.

We are in Richmond Park, in the Isabella Plantation. This large log has been cut to make a seat. It has become a bit polished by many trousers and the weather is working away at the grain.

The sun is strong and the light bounces back, almost as if firing a flashlight into a mirror. It's another one of the natural beauties to be seen in the Park.


  1. Curious title - reminded me of J G Ballard's "The Assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy Considered as a Downhill Motor Race" for some reason

  2. @Richard....amazing! Just what I thought at the time. It's a greatly underrated book.

  3. ... and Richard had no comments about the quality of the photo this time! Well, I can tell you that I like it very much!
