Photo Shoot, "old"...

Krissy's subject this week for her photo shoot is "old".  One of my favorite things in the whole world is trees.  I love to think about the history of a tree.  When was it planted?  Did anyone climb its branches?  Sit under its shade?  They fascinate me - as if they almost have a soul.  I love crooked branches and weeping branches.  The colored leaves in the Fall really move me!  Today I have two trees for you.  They must be quite old.  The first has a knotty tree trunk.  It lives in a local park.  I am sure a lot kids have played in its shade as it is next to a playground.


The next tree I have for you is a tree that is across the street from my apartment.  I have shown it to you all a couple of years ago.  It is called my "V Tree".  It stands in front of a church that's about 200 years old.  When I go outside it screams my name.  It also yells other "V" words to me.  In the Winter it is a perfect shaped V with very few branches coming out of it.  Here it is in late Summer full of green leaves getting ready to turn its Fall shades.


I hope you enjoyed my "old" pictures!  If you would like to play the photo shoot stop by

  1. Love your trees. That knotty trunk tree, do you know what kind of tree it is?
    Sorry I haven't been around lately. I haven't had the time nor inclination to do much journaling lately. You know that feeling probably. Hope all is wll with you.

  7. Loved your pics!  My favorite tree lives in my OLD house which is named "Q-Tip" it was a baby (just freshly planted) when we moved in and it grew with us and let me tell ya...if I could have paid to get it uprooted and moved with us without killing it I would have!  I tried!!  I did!  I miss it SO was 13 years old when we moved.  

  8. Just beautiful.

  9. love the picture.... i think we can all remember a favorite tree
    when i moved into my home it came with the most beautiful cherry tree out back and i loved that tree, my kids use to love to pick the cherries off it every season unfortunately we had some bad storms and the tree got destroyed it was a sad day for me when we had to finish cutting it down
    take care, Chrissie

    Linda :)

  13. Great pictures. I love your view. It seems so soothing.

  14. I'm loving the first picture! There is something about knotty tree's that regal you with age. Perhaps it's as a human wrinkles, the tree becomes more knotted with time. (Hugs) Indigo

  15. Those tree pictures are so cool!  We have two tall trees in our backyard that I absolutely love.  They were probably there 20 or 30 years ago when my neighbourhood was first built.


Please leave your thoughts - fun, intelligent, silly, joyful, spacy - it matters not =)
