Tree Kin #1

Tree Kin #1
Balboa Park, San Diego, CA
November, 2010
I need to find out what these trees are.  Their roots fascinate me.  Their writhing shapes are suggestive, dark, ominous and deeply organic.

As I shot these, and the others in this series, I started seeing faces in their branches.  Tolkeinesque images abounded.

Whether I chose to finish one of these photos as a color or monochrome image depended largely on whether the colors of the limbs and roots were interesting, without being a distraction from the shapes.
