Trees and Ropes

An urban tree draped in heavy rope, no idea why.
I liked it for the contrasting textures and because
it is a mystery. And another tree decorated with a
frayed rope.

Trees and Surroundings

The relationship between trees and their surroundings is a theme that continues to interest me. As with any relationship, the arrangement between nature and a man made structure is continually changing with aspects of adjustment, compromise, patience...a struggle for dominance. Naturally I am rooting for nature, in her sometimes slow determination and sometimes in her more energetic need to overcome and obscure obstacles.
Because I live in a city, the trees that I observe on my walks do not stand alone, they are but one element in relationship with their surroundings. It is this relationship that is of interest to me.
