Urban landscapes: the city tree
GNARLED TREE TRUNK, ST. STEPHEN’S GREEN, DUBLIN, IRELAND
I loved the expressiveness of this ancient tree trunk. But there was a young college student lying on the grass nearby and I didn’t want to seem like a creep. So I let her know she wasn’t the focus of my photography and all was good.
The other thing I liked about this scene is the near-far perspective; the detailed tree in your face and soft hues of the distant lawn.

Rich contours and textures in this lovely tree, and the emerald background emphasizes it nicely, Frank. I also really like the story behind photographing it, with the college student and the human interaction. Beautiful.
