Thematic Photographic 195 - Bushes and Trees

Brushed by the hand of G-d
London, ON
March 2012



















This week's theme, Bushes and Trees, should be an easy one for a whole lot of reasons. On the surface, they're everywhere. So if you're looking for reasonably pretty subject matter, a bush or a tree - or both - shouldn't be too hard to find. They're also incredibly diverse, so you can shoot them six ways from Sunday and never come up with the same thing twice.

Besides, if you don't shoot them today, tomorrow you'll come back to find they've changed yet again. They grow, they add leaves, shed leaves, lose limbs, change in the light...I think it's going to be an interesting topic to explore, and I can't wait to see what y'all come up with.

Your turn: Thematic is our weekly photo sharing/learning/partying extravaganza. It isn't competitive and it isn't remotely stressful. Just shoot a picture that supports the theme, post it to your blog, then leave a comment letting everyone know where to find it. Already got something online? Share that, too! Want to share a bunch of stuff? Have at it! If you're new to this nuttiness and want a primer, just click here. Otherwise, have fun!

Love the black & white. Mine have color, but here are some of my favorite bushes and trees. (Or at least they are at one of my favorite places.)

I love this topic, because I love bushes and trees.

Here's a couple of trees that people might not be so familiar with:

American Yellowwood and Tricolor Beech

(Along with assorted irises, geese, and ducks.)
