Trees have been around forever. Mostly everyone likes them for different reasons: shade, security/protection around your home, beautify the landscape, taking photographs, sleeping and/or reading under, or just simply a place for peace
How often do we take the time to “really” look at a tree? Me, personally I don’t take any time until the other day. Trees goes through a lot of abuse from mother nature. The four seasons bring so many types of weather and they’re normally not protective. Little by little their beauty decrease and we go and find another tree that looks better. All we know they’re there for us to do what it is we need them to do.
Determined to take photographs after my walk, I began to look at the trees more carefully. As I looked the inner parts of the trees looked like art. The designs also looked like the bark was glued to the trees. They were really cool! I went online and found the Anatomy of a Tree. Trees have five layers: Outer Bark, Inner Bark, Cambium Cell Layer, Sapwood, and Heartwood.
So my project that day was to photograph the trees. Not just to document their outer protection/beauty but to try and show the unique art that’s within. The next time you’re enjoying trees for whatever reason, take an extra moment and enjoy the beauty of the trees 😉
