Neutral today. Surprise! Playing it safe again. Well, hopefully still nice with the lace-y embroidery and all. And I just needed to be cool. As they quipped on the news today, it may be the first day of autumn but somebody forgot to tell the weather...
I always walk past this tree on my morning walkies with my doggy. And often paused to look at it. Each time noted the twisted tortured complex beauty of its trunk. And wanted to photograph it.
I love trees. I expect this is already blindingly obvious from the number of times I picture them here, but... I really do love trees. I don't think I could bear to live somewhere where there were not lots of trees. Often I like trees more than I like some people. I guess that comes across as hopelessly hippy dippy, and don't worry I'm not going all earth mother chanting crazy peace-out head in the clouds opt out of the real world here... I do like lots of people too! Just that I find trees very comforting and I don't always find people to be comforting...Did anyone watch the Oscars last night? Well, let's be honest, who cares about the Oscars, but what about the red carpet bit beforehand.... the only interesting bit. I was out last night, but got my husband to record it for me to watch later. Recording is the best way, because I can just fast forward through all the boring talking and entertainment and actual awards rubbish, and just slow down for the shots of the gowns. Looking forward to checking those out. Any highlights, anyone; favourites for me to look out for?
