Yes, Patricia! Escher plus Hitchcock.

I felt the Hitchcockian vibes but his name didn't immediately pop up.
Thanks for interpreting my unconscious mind.  ;)

I really went out of my way to bring you this - I walked to the other side of the building and looked into the neighbours' garden. Somebody had to do it.

I flew all the way to Hawai'i for this one!  ;D

Your palm and mine are leaning towards one another (or apart, if you juxtapose unkindly), which suggests that they share the same gene pool which has been ruffled by island winds and its gifts scattered across the oceans; yes, even if this one is just pretending a tiny bit, being little but an inland sea with miniscule outlets, one but a canal.

Some people just don't want to use the stairs.

I like that one John. Good "story" in that image. You didn't bump into Slobodan there by change? ;-)

I love this one. It has a story, the colors and geometry/architecture.
Well done.

Reminds me of the balloon fiesta I saw in Albuquerque in 1993.

I've been documenting my north-most maple tree's refusal this winter to give up all its leaves. This is today's pic.

Hi Dave,
You must have had a few mornings of severe late season cold before the process had completed. If it left them so tightly attached the winds have not yet stripped them, new Spring growth should push them off to allow you your raking pleasure. Beech trees happily exhibit this behaviour on a regular basis, and is one way to locate them in the woods during winter months when you had up to that point not even realized they were among your species.

That one has power indeed, and mystery. Cuts right across the banal.

Patricia, I've seen the behavior you describe with trees in my favorite trail-walking park during years with early cold weather. This maple has been behaving oddly for the past 18 months or so. In fall 2016 it was late to drop its leaves, though they finally did fall in a big burst about two weeks after my other maple dropped its last stragglers. This past spring both maples budded normally but the leaves grew slowly, maybe due to unusually cool May weather. (My lilies were late too.) This fall the other maple dumped its leaves a little late but they did come down. But with the pictured tree the leaves have been very stubborn, wind or cold or lack thereof. It's kinda comical driving down my street and seeing nothing but bare branches, then this weirdo. I'm hoping it's just confused rather than ill.
