Welcome to "Reflections 2019," my online photo journal for sharing thoughts, "sketches," and works in progress.

Volume 3: "Log Cabin Studies"

April 2019


While exploring the Pioneer History Center at Yosemite, the rustic log cabin buildings caught my fascination. I found myself whisked back to the 1800s, arriving in a stage coach after days or weeks of rough travel, to be met by the peaceful majesty of nature's splendor.

"A log cabin symbolized the embrace between civilization and nature, humans literally wrapping the trees around them as they might draw on a coat and hat." 

~ Gene Logsdon

Cabins with Log

Interlocked

"There are elements of intrinsic beauty in the simplification of a house built on the log cabin idea. First, there is the bare beauty of the logs themselves with their long lines and firm curves. Then there is the open charm felt of the structural features which are not hidden under plaster and ornament, but are clearly revealed, a charm felt in Japanese architecture....The quiet rhythmic monotone of the wall of logs fills one with the rustic peace of a secluded nook in the woods." 

~ Gustav Stickley
