Trees

I love trees. Maybe it is because I grew up in Washington, or maybe it is because they have such simple/complex beauty. Oddly, I like park trees more than a forest, mainly because you don't have to look down all the time to watch your step. Or give me a good orchard. Although, since I just came from one, I know you still need to watch your step. Anyway, I digress. Behold, the trees.

Photos of the week:



They are working on expanding the road near my house, and the city just chopped down a bunch of trees. It was really hard to watch. My view as I come out of our neighborhood went from this:

 
To this:



Maybe when they are all finished, they will plant some more.

That picture of the view from the house before and then after made me sad! I love the black and white pictures - they look really good.

It looks so different without the trees. We'll have to drive by next time we're out and really take a look. It makes me sad how quickly things change.
