|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The reason for this photo is because I have lost an old friend. This is the base of the Sugar Maple tree from which I took many of my autumn, fallen leaf photos. The tree has died this year... a victim of its own self-destruction. I knew this would happen some day but the tree was priced right (and no one else wanted it) when I bought it and it has lasted quite a few years providing privacy, shade, and beautiful autumn leaves. And, I might add, in its death provided the material for a daily devotional. :)|
Maybe next year I will plant that oak tree, which up until now, I had no room for.
There are those of us that have
produced much appreciated beauty
and joy in the world
only to have life cut short
by such roots of destruction.
“There are seeds of self-destruction in all of us
that will bear only unhappiness
if allowed to grow.”
- Dorothea Brande
Taken as per usual with similar PP work.
