Tree Squares: Dead

I couldn’t think of a kinder way to say it, but this tree is, well, dead. Very striking, though, with its strong and dramatic lines. I spotted it while walking between Coogee and Maroubra, which are Sydney coastal suburbs.

I thought those bold shapes and textures would work well in black and white, too.

Tree Squares 1: Serengeti

How many animals can you spot in this rather poor photo?

I’m desperately missing travel, so I’m kicking off Square Trees with an old archive shot from a trip to Africa in 1993 — bringing back memories of the good old days. This is from an ‘overland trip’ that took in Kenya and Tanzania. I think these are Umbrella Thorn Acacia trees. They’re pretty cool, whatever they are!
