You can see my honey locust coming to life!

  1. K-LIne, I LOVE the composition of these shots. For some reason they bring to mind images of Japanese prints. The simplicity and complexity you capture is really beautiful. #2 is my favorite. I can almost feel the tree popping with new life.

  5. Bel: Why thank you. One of the many shots I've lost in it's original (high res) versions. Alas. I should disclose that my very good photo of a husband took these.

    Drollgirl: The sky was an awesome colour that day. We've had some very crap weather (for, like, 3 years now) so this day was a gift. The tree shade really brings out the blue, don't you think? Thanks for your comment.

    Sal: This one doesn't have thorns. I didn't know they come with thorns. I'm going to have to look it up!

    E and Wendy: Thank you so much. Once again, credit goes to Scottie.

  6. It's a beautiful picture of a bright sunny day. My mother passed recently and it is strange how beauty like this brings up poignant feelings. Tell Scottie he has a good eye and a new fan of his photography.

  8. Oh beautiful photos! Someday I may learn to take such beautiful photos. The honey locust is nice, mine was too close to the house, and disturbing the foundation, and had to come down. I miss it.

  9. D. I certainly will. And I'm sorry to hear about your mother. Sometimes, in grief, the most simple things can bring up a very deep response. I'm thinking about you...

    GJ: You're a nut! :-)

    Mardel: Your photos are lovely! Eek about the tree. I know, given the flowering almond situation, how stressful that can be and I've only had that little sweetie for a year or so. The almond appears to be rallying, fyi!!
