I have been working on some ideas for my photos. I met a woman in Mexico who is a photographer and she transfers her photos to wood. I picked her brain and then came up with some ideas that I am experimenting with. The photo below is the original and the one above is the same photo transferred to a piece of solid fir about one inch thick. I was going for an antiqued distressed look and I think I got it. The image is permanently transferred to the wood and then clear coated. I will be working with other mediums and will keep you up-dated as to their failure or success. There is a bit of a learning curve here so I do not have really high expectations just yet. I have already learned that my images have to be a bit brighter so they print brighter.

I like it. I think some of your old building photos would look nice done like that.

Yes, and I have many old barn photos, or should I say photos of old barns.

I like it the way it is. Darker rather than lighter.
