In honor of my actually very pretty new blog template, I thought I'd talk briefly about my obssession with trees.
No, not learning about them, growing them, saving them...just taking pictures of them.

What I've found, after years of taking random pictures of trees, is that I don't think any camera will ever truly capture what I see with my eyes. There is an experience of trees that can't be transmitted photographically, I don't think. Also, all of the photos tend to look the same. :-\
There are better ways to capture them, however, such as part of a landscape.

I love those photos of lush tree-lined paths (especially in autumn), and wish I knew of a place like that personally.
