Tagline Roulette - Volume I, Edition 29 - "Wood"

I have a list of words, currently numbered at 147, and each week I go to an online random number generator to get...(Wait for it!)...a  randomly generated number! I use this number to point me to the tag word that I'll use to create a pool of images by Etsy POE Team members.   It is this pool from which I will select the images that will populate that week's feature.  It should be noted that the "tag word" in no way dictates a theme, it is merely part of the search criteria used to create the image pool.

This week our random word turned out to be "Wood" which produced a collection of 14 pages and 527 listings.  

Originally, my target in this feature was to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but holding the line here at only "10 images" has proven difficult for me, so I decided to just go with what I feel.  Ten images is now my minimum, and my maximum depends on the number of images in the pool and how I feel about things.  I don't want to feature so many images that folks might get bored looking at them, and once I start approaching 20 images, posting them starts to get to be a drag, so now my limit falls somewhere between "10" and "folks might get bored / this is getting to be a drag".

This week we ended up with a collection of 20 images.  Please take a look; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Oh, and as always, please feel free to send me your word suggestions!

  1. Hey Steve! Many thanks for including my photo here! They all rock! "Flaking Bark," "Green Door," "Time" all round out my top three! Keep it up. Join Facebook why don't ya so we can see you more often!

  2. Hey Sue,

    It's always good to hear from you!

    I don't know; I'm really not a Facebook kinda guy, you know what I mean? It's just one more thing; then you're always hearing about those Nimrods messing up other people's accounts, and I say to myself, "Who needs the aggravation?!"

    What I may do is start posting some of my more profound ponderings and revelations; ya know, see what happens.

  3. Steve, these are amazing. Hard to choose favs. so I am just going to savour them all. :)

    Have a lovely day, T. :)

  4. Steve, thanks so much for including me in this gorgeous collection! So many beautiful pieces - and with one of my favorite subject matters, it's hard to choose a favorite. "Fence and Pasture", "Solace" and "Pears" are my top thee at the moment. Ask me again in 2 minutes and it'll probably be different. ;)

    Keep up the great work!

  5. So, I think I need to change the name of my photo to SCRAP WOOD instead of SCRAP METAL, since that's what was actually written on the canister and what was inside the canister at the WOOD shop in Rockland, Maine. Somehow, you intuited that! Steve, I absolutely love and look forward to your Tagline Roulettes! So clever and creative! I also find myself excitedly rushing to see the next photo and the next photo and the next one - it's like opening presents! What a riches of talent can be found amongst the Photographers of Etsy. I am proud to be included in this impressive group and in your wonderful, inventive blog. THANK YOU! phipps y moran at TooArtfulForYou

  9. Steve, thanks so much for including my cello image in this wonderful collection. You've curated wood in all its phases - from living tree to rough-hewn planks to shaped creations. You've got a great editorial eye.
