Most Gabriolans heat with wood which means you'll find a woodshed behind most houses on the island. A typical structure has a tin roof and slat sides which make for nice shadow patterns in the afternoon sunlight.
This image has been in my files unposted for months because it's crap technically. The highlights are totally washed out (see some the the log ends and the end of the axe handle) due to the limitations of my digital camera's autoexposure system. Why post it now? Well, as a counterpoint to yesterday's picture I guess. Maybe I'll reshoot this on film someday and get those highlights perfect but I realized this blog isn't supposed to be about picking photographic nits. It's supposed to be about showing the world what Gabriola looks like so here ya go, warts and all.
