i'm not sure why, but...



i love the look of a dead tree. {in fact, come to think of it, my very first post on this blog was about a dead tree in a field that i stopped to take pictures of while i was driving to a friends house.} i guess that's why i love this one. plus, it's just one cool looking tree—all by itself out there in the open, next to a dilapidated barn. all of its twisted limbs that seem to stretch out as far as they can—almost as if they are reaching for something. no leaves, yet still beautiful to me.

i took more shots of it last night on my way home with the setting sun casting a really neat glow that lit up the white areas in such a cool way. but this was from my drive-by shots last week.

wish me luck today. i'm waiting to hear back from two establishments—my internet provider {about my slow internet that has been kicking me off a lot lately} and the business where i dropped off my resume on monday. if i don't hear from either by about noon, then i will be giving both of them a call. waiting, waiting, waiting. sometimes it seems like that is all we ever do, no?

Hi Kooky said...

I love leafless (or dead) trees too. There's such beauty in that underlying branch structure. (And the contrast of the branch color against the sky...)

Hang in there with the waiting! I'll say a prayer!

I hope you receive good news today, Georgia. I, too, love photographing withered tree limbs against the sky. Always a pretty shot that goes well with so many words. Crossing my fingers for you... :)

That old tree must've seen a lot...probably had swings hanging from it & kids climbing it.
Good luck with both of your phone calls!

I love trees. Old, gnarly...silent guardians of our past and future.
I adore you picture. Beautiful!!

The tree makes me think of an old woman with gray hair that has been through so much in her life, yet, she is still hanging on. An old woman who has seen a chid die, or loved and lost a husband. She deserves respect just for surviving.
