I love taking photographs of trees and I hate taking photographs of trees. To be clear, I’m a great admirer of trees, but sadly, my depictions never seem to do them justice. The very three dimensional and extremely textural qualities of trees almost never translate well to the cropped two dimensional frame of the photograph. Still, I can’t resist taking photos of them even knowing that the resultant shots will likely be disappointing.
So here are a few frames of trees from various rolls of film and cameras, these haven’t been published yet, I guess I was saving them for this tree sampler.
