LOL...what a find....makes you wonder how long it took for someone to do this because of the fancy letter work. :) I love the wood grain on this old piece....great shot!

Early grafitti or a By-line? Such soft light enhances you image.

Beautiful tones and rich texture...if ERL only knew we were looking at his handiwork all these decades later !!

This is just delightful. A rich and warm sense of the past and the present. One wonders how ERL got away with such an elaborate carving -- not only must it have taken a long time, it wasn't exactly in a hard-to-find place. Quite a charming photo. I am enjoying this series very much.

Great find. I love how intricately the initials are carved--artistically. The DOF and color are lovely in this, really brings out the mood.
