Rugged View, 2014

While on vacation in Maine, this was a window in the old cabin I had previously photographed.  What I didn’t realize until I walked around the corner of the wall was just how rugged this little piece of human engineering was.  I could imagine someone generations ago hewing wood from the property and building this the old fashioned way:  slowly; by hand.

It’s weathered and worn and the paint is peeling from the wooden frame.  But perhaps my favorite part of this piece is the glass.  On one side, you have a reflection of the thick woods on the property, but in that last third of the window, there is just desolation and ruin.

I happen to like the juxtaposition.  But then, of course I would.
