trees without leaves
I took this one from the Rite-Aid parking lot. I think that's what I love about photography--it doesn't require a studio and free time and lots of materials and expertise. I don't have to set aside time for photographing; I can just do it as I go along my regular life that includes boring things like stopping to get more Halls after work because I'm coughing my brains out. Right in the middle of that, I can find beauty and stop for a moment to take it in. Lately I have been drawn to the look of naked trees against the sky. You don't see a lot of that here in Mississippi because so few trees are deciduous. I never thought about that much until my most recent trip to Kentucky for Christmas, during which I kept finding myself in awe of the wonderful patterns branches make when leaves aren't in the way. I snapped this one just outside my Mamaw's house:
Neither of these are in my shop yet, but I'm thinking I should change that. Do you agree?
