Phantasy of a tree (exercise #10) #02

I photographed this image from the same tree than yesterday’s photo. It is a very old tree on the bike path in Merced, CA. I walked by this tree many times since it is on my exercise route and I just overlooked it.

Keep in mind: The purpose of constant photographic exercises is to train your eyes that you see things and images that we normally overlook!

Keep on shooting!

Phantasy of a tree (exercise #10)

One of the greatest gifts as a photographer is creativity and imagination. These gifts have to be combined with persistence and hard work.  I want you to continue to photograph just one tree of you choice and create images of great fantasy that the viewer does not recognise as a tree or part of a tree. Enjoy and have fun.

I found this old tree on my exercise walk which has lots of cracks and structure.
