the shapes of trees
There is something quite compelling to me about the shapes of trees. I find myself looking at the way the limbs and branches and twigs reach around and give form to the tree. It is most obvious - and most interesting - in the winter when the branches are bare, or when the tree is dead. (is there something, I dunno, ironic in dead trees being so interesting?) The organic "randomness" which isn't always so random fascinates me.
Yesterday, when we were at City of Rocks, there were a few trees and some bushes that really caught my eye. What I love about my digital camera is there is NO wasted film, and I took pictures.
