Tree Portraits

Always alluring, sometimes soothing, and occasionally foreboding, trees come in many personalities.

The portrayals of trees in "The Wizard of Oz" and "Lord of the Rings", always creeped me out. But I agree on one thing: trees are anthropomorphic.

Like human beings, some trees wear beautiful clothes and adornments. "Four Seasons", below, shows the seasons of a cinnamon crepe myrtle and its inhabitants in a 48" circle. Click the image for a larger version.

The complicated and mysterious tree in "Time for Reflection" is painted on mirror so the tree reflects whatever faces it (in this case, me with my camera).

Perhaps you know someone like that.
