still life with bones

this arrangement reminds me of the desolate footage after a tornado has ripped through. roofs and 2x4s and furniture, each meant for a specific purpose, tossed into thoughtless piles. i guess every bone, in its way, is the aftermath of a natural disaster.

assorted found animal bones from minnesota woods

psssst: here’s something I was just reminded of. it’s very hard to photograph white bones on a white background.

    Did an extremely good job at it though. Must have solved the dilemma.

    Difficult, maybe, but these white bones are beautiful. Every life intersects with a personal disaster, the happiest are of the natural kind!

artist’s conk

 

artist’s conk, a bracket fungus. my favorite part is the raspberrry cane that either grew right through the fungus, or that the fungus grew around.
