Tree Squares: Cannonballs

I wouldn’t want one of these to fall on me!

This crazy-looking tree is a Couroupita guianensis — ‘Cannonball tree’ to most people. I’ve only ever seen one in my life, at the botanic garden in Darwin.

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.
