Cry of the Ancestors

Cry of the Ancestors

I met this tree on a walk down Main Street last September. It had a lot to say to me. In that season of gaudy color on the part of trees, this tree spoke loudly in its differences.

I permitted myself to take my DSLR on my walk down to the dentist and back. That always means I’m going to return with a few gigabytes of photos of whatever inspired me as I walked along. This twisted, long dead, bare naked tree was full of conversation as big clouds sailed quickly over head on an alternately sunny and dark autumn morning.

The Calling

This section of the tree looked so much like a proto-face that I have several photos that denote communication.

Laughter was another thing I sensed from this tree. Perhaps it’s been there a while and seen quite a bit. I know I’ve been passing by them on foot, bike and car for years.

Spirits Laugh

The weathered textures and tones were fascinating.
