For some reason, the shapes of trees appeal to me as a photographic subject. I think it’s at least partially related to their fractal nature. Here are two different views of a tree in the parking lot of my local library. The first one was taken back in 2003 with a Minolta 7Hi camera using an infra-red filter over the lens, converted to black and white. (Note: you can click on each of these to see a larger version)
This second photo was made yesterday in color. I like the way the blue sky showing through the clouds seems to follow branches in the top middle portion of the tree and the the green growth in the canopy behind the tree lines up with its branches on the right side.
The third photo is of a Ferris wheel in the parking lot at a local mall against the storm clouds this morning. Hopefully the storm will clear before evening or not too many people will be at the fair.
The fourth and last photo is a macro shot of an African violet plant. I had to take this hand-held, since I don’t yet have an l-bracket for my D700.
