I decided on this title since if you look at it just right it looks like it is looking back at you. . .
The idea came to me when driving home one afternoon. I happened to be passing through a town which had as a symbol, a simple singular tree sitting upon a few lines which had the look of rolling hills. As I passed as sign with this symbol on it, the sunlight hit just at the right angle and out of the corner of my eye, it appeared as if there was a skull or some sort of ghastly face emblazoned on a municipal placard. Of course I had to get a better look but as my eyes refocused on the sign, there it was, just a simple tree. This is my attempt at capturing that moment.
