This was one of my favorite trees in our area. It was old and scared and gnarled. Slowly the city has been chopping away at it. It is now more of a stump than a tree. its former self is now only a memory.
My recent trip to the Rocky Mountain Railroad Museum was to attend a workshop with local photographer Eli Vegi. Eli promotes what he calls "Right Brain Photography." This is an example of that sort of thinking, by adding motion to a static object, in this case a locomotive wheel, to give it life.
