I had just dropped my youngest two in their elementary school when I saw this tree. My two older kids were still in the car. They were not that impressed with this tree. I forgave them. They are teenagers and too cool for trees. I was struck by how much character this tree has. And that bright left-over yellow leaves is just so pretty. I pulled over, got out of my car and took a picture of it with my iPhone 6+ camera. It was an overcast, and a bit cold and I think my hands might have been shaking some.
The trunk itself has more character than some people I met. Really. That sounded really mean, but if you had meet the same people I did, you would agree. You might not blogged about it, but you would agree.
I still have two finals to finish. I should be working on it. I get the hives every time I look at it. I am finishing the one I am currently working on. I just needed a break. I wonder if it is like saying -"I needed a vacation"- but really you have not been working at all. How it is vacation from work when, well, you are not working. It is simply relocating your non-working self to somewhere that requires money. Oh, bitter, much?
But back to the trunk. I it is really a lovely trunk. I wonder if I should go back there on a good day and take my better camera and take another shot at it. Hopefully, I will not freak the owner of the house. I wonder if they would believe me if I say I am just fascinated with their front tree.
I have not learned the art of editing a picture will. As in, take out the background so I am left with just the parts that I want. I am rambling. Absolutely. I bet if I were to read this over, I have so many grammatical errors, it will not be funny. Also, I am article-blind. I am working on using my articles in my sentences. Really.
