A line of Bay trees at Barrington Court, Somerset




Really like that sort of idea; much more than just a pretty picture.

Pretending that my dslr was really a 6x6 in drag, I tried to see the square world within a rectangle. Not the easiest or most comfortable experiment - a bit of a test of patience, in fact.

I rather suspect that reverting to that format (6x6) would be a little less instinctive than I had thought. Okay with people portraits - probably perfect, in fact, but a bit more demanding in the great outdoors where so much intrudes and should be cropped away... I guess that explains a lot of the beautiful motifs that regular 6x6 devotees adopt: they get used to a way of finding things that work and avoid impossible challenges.

Another faux 'blad image.

I can see where this is leading, as my wife might have said.

More likely they are just so easy to classify.

Like lung lichen, for one.  :)

The foreground isn't nice, but it is well structured.  The attentive photographer's shadow intersects the bench line at the pile of cards under the blooms.  In some ways the blooms are more themselves in the context of how they are frequently seen and beside material into which wood is made.

That's because all of them around here are sulking: they were once shown a picture of that plastic one in the Pacific (you know, the transportabe one with the curve that bends over the sands) that you can rent in Hollywood complete with hammock and the topless wench with long blonde hair...

These poor saps can only stand still, get taller and older and not even enjoy the buzz of getting milked for toddy. What a drag.

A dogwood has a life, in comparison.

Okay, so this isn't a "tree" tree. It's a dead saguaro cactus. But it's big like a tree and kinda woody. I see this one every day but a few days ago I saw the excavator parked in the distance and loved the shapes of both.
