Frugal Film 2021: Gross Dam & Reservoir

My February 2021 offering to the Frugal Film Project. Almost didn’t make the deadline last week, but fortunately my film turnaround time at Old School Photo Labs was quick. Thank you guys! So here it is:

Tree Carving: Frugal Film from January2021

My Posting from the Frugal Film Project:

I am finally getting started with the 2021 Project.   Two summers ago the City of Lafayette, CO was cutting down Cottonwood trees In a park near my home. The trees were nearly dead and a hazard to park patrons and passer’s by in bad weather.  But I had wondered why they left about half of the trunk still standing.  Well this past December an artist began sculpting one of the trunks. And here it is:

My husband had a chance to speak with him and he said eventually he would sculpt all four trunks with locally themed art.  The Rooster represents the Oatmeal Festival, held here in January during non-COVID years. The Rooster represents the winner of the Festival’s 5K walk/run.

Artist: Lueb Popoft, local tree carving artist.  Read more about hie Goals: https://www.hollowlogonline.com/biography.html
