Florian's photos: City trees
I have somewhat lagged with blogging recently - not because of laziness or demotivation. I was busy working in my digital darkroom and photographing!
City trees is another new gallery that I have added recently, just like the drapes and blinds introduced not too long ago. Of course also without watermarks and under an BY-NC-ND creative commons licence. A recent blog post by Carl Weese depicting and entitled "City trees" encouraged me to present you my still small collection of this theme. So far, there are only few photographs, but more will follow.
Similar to the trees collection introduced in an earlier post, city trees is made up of photographs from close or far and from trees in groups or solitude. However, the urban environment in the form of colorful walls, facades or buildings is part of the compositions and the trees have of course been planted - that's why the collection is part of Man-made beauty. I appreciate the contrast between the convoluted and complex branches and twigs and the straight lines and shapes of city architecture, which are often emphasized by harsh color contrasts. In some cases, however, the trees seem abused and forced into a shape and pattern more in line with the city environment (as in THIS example).
I hope you enjoy and wish you a nice day!
