Another kind of tree


Software's (non) future?
London, ON, April 2010


In honor of this week's tree-filled Thematic Photographic (click here to dive in), I'd like to share this decidedly different form of tree. Personal computers - in this case, my wife's Mac - use a tree-like hierarchy to manage software and files.

I've been living with one form of computerized tree or another since I pried my first machine apart oh so many years ago. But only now did it occur to me that I could have some photographic fun with it, too.

Your turn: Can you think of other, non-standard kinds of trees?

Just an idea!

And of course there is the Family Tree, which can be a lot of fun, and sometimes rather amazing.

How about a fence.

The family tree occurred to me, too. In my case, it's rather more like a family hedge - it seems to spread out amazingly rapidly, with some rather intertwined branches

How about a binary tree?

Logarithms?

Math equations.
Family trees
Varicose veins.
brain waves
optic nerves
branching into eternity
philibusters

what about undersea trees of seaweeds and various plants?
