The intricate etchings on the bark of this this tree offer fascinating images that I was fortunate to discover walking to my car in West Hollywood, a suburb in Los Angeles. I took several photos of graffiti trees using my Macro lens and selected those that have multiple images, colors and texture. In this composition I perceive a vast landscape with villages, people and mountain trails. The graphic details on this tree remind me of the primitive imagery of cave art. There are many icons to discover and I always look forward to your projections in my series of graffiti trees.

    i sense a tribal feel to this….. and almost like a primeval dance…
    (three years ago I was walking in west Hollywood, just off the Boulevard…and took photos of tree bark and tree forms! Would be funny if they were near this one!)

  • I agree about the tribal look of this piece. Wendy, are you the one I saw in West Hollywood? I was right behind you taking a photo of the same tree! :) As always Wendy you have very interesting responses to my abstracts.

  • It was three years ago…I was making the most amazing memories out there in your country…..alas, don’t know when i will get back to visit that land or even Hollywood and its trees…..but it still holds a place in my heart…..

    Thanks Pinky. I saw great texture on this tree and was happy it shows in the photograph. Also I perceived that the teal blue delineates the form of an animal and liked the mysterious figure on the far right.

    I think the great capture is a stretch in time because I do not think the handwriting is of recent, seems very old. Quest
