So, if it’s just a camera, and just a tree . . . couldn’t be art, right? It was work. And freezing rain, and my camera isn’t sealed against that. It was also a gift; my girlfriend got home from work and had this framed and printed on watercolor paper.

Then I borrowed $40 from her for a couple of rocks.

Joke. I borrowed $20 for tequila.

I now come back about a year later. The OnOne edge frame effects are tacky junk, tricks for people who need tricks. That will be removed when I can find the file. (I’m going through about 250,000 images, 2/3rds of which are exposure bracketing and need to be tossed; the remainder need to be named something identifiable. Life ain’t easy, but . . . the only way to get out of the game is worse than playing the game.)

I think, without the edge frame efects, this will stand on it’s own.

I could be wrong, God knows I’ve made a mistake in my life before. Only one though.

This is not a love song.

But I would like it to be. Soft hearted fool that I am.

    Intriguing. A fleeting perception of another time, another reality. Really fine.

    Well I think it is quite nice the way it is and I actually like the frame, think it goes really well with the tree, it doesn’t look like a frame to me. But then again I have onOne and like it but I usually use several frames and tweak them a lot! Anyhow…. I think this is really really nice, glad I got to see it before you change it, if you ever do that is… Very beautiful work, so there!
