Adobe and Bare Tree.



This was shot in a small courtyard at the Santa Fe Convention Center. There is something beautiful about a bare tree. Too bad the garbage can was there.

Perhaps a hideaway for smokers? The can might be for butts. :) Have a great day Randy!

Trees don't have to hold leaves to hold beauty. Wonderful picture.

Kate said...

Adobe photographs beautifully! You could move the can; anything is permissible for art!!

Adobe is sooo attractive.
Reminds me of an Ansel Adams shot.

Wonderful balance to this photo. Bare bones of the tree against the adobe with the vertical line giving it height. Just the right amount of blue sky. Darn nice I'd say!

Darn garbage can. What garbage can? It's still a really nice shot. And the bare tree shall soon sprout new leaves!

Re your comment on Ocala: There is a sculpture by the theater...off to the left of the entrance (you can't see it 'cause of the trees)...it's one of our multi-colored horses. Very nice.

I love bare trees this time of year too! We don't have the pretty adobe buildings though.

Strange composition, I really like the stones of the pavement.

JM said...

Love the minimalism!

Lol, isn't it strange how bins interfere with serious photography?!

Love the slender tree.

Michelle said...

Still, a great photo and the garbage can is just a sign of the times.

RedPat said...

I love the graphic look of this one, Randy!

Judy said...

Very nice, garbage can and all :)

Jack said...

It is a spare composition, isn't it?

We have many hideaways like that hear in KL for smokers, but you can see many cigarette butts everywhere on the ground as evidence, but that's here that people are not too concious about public cleanliness.

Paul said...

I think the garbage can adds to the overall ambiance of this picture, nice composition on this shot!

Traveling Hawk said...

A nice contrast with the blue sky!

Kathy said...

Very artsy photo. I guess it's the composition. Good job.

It's the garbage can with the bare tree that makes it interesting ... unique.
