Appreciating Deeply, Photos of Built Stuff, Photos of Flora Wood, Iceland 14 July 2018 14 July 2018 Buildings, Trees Iceland’s use of exterior wood made it seem like a Scandinavian country. Its limited ability to grow its own wood made it seem like an Arctic country. I guess both of those make sense.

Jim Taylor 15 July 2018 at 8:15 pm 7 months ago I wonder if this will let me paste in a photo Apparently not. I’ll send you the jpg separately. Jim T Isabel Gibson 15 July 2018 at 10:47 pm 7 months ago Jim – Well, there’s often a way . . . Yup, this works. Laurna Tallman 15 July 2018 at 12:47 pm 7 months ago I love the weathered blue-painted boards, which look approximately like what I did to my barn-board kitchen cabinets to the consternation of the sons who built them and favored the dark wood. How very nice to find a confirmation for my personal taste and the Scandinavian link that probably explains why I made that unusual choice. Isabel Gibson 15 July 2018 at 1:15 pm 7 months ago Laurna – Interesting. I saw unpainted/weathered boards, and no blue. Well, they do say that colour is not an objective phenomenon but a human experience. Certainly the aesthetic that we saw in many places seemed distinctively Scandinavian to us. The small towns along the coast were, with one exception, pristine, even if not affluent. Judith 15 July 2018 at 4:59 pm 7 months ago Excellent photos! Great composition and colour.
