I'm a noticer...perhaps because I've been snapping photos since I was 15.
Hmmm. It's probably more accurate to say that I snap photos because I notice things.
I visited Charleston, South Carolina over Memorial Day weekend and on the way back north, I drove 12 miles to John's Island to see a big tree, called the Angel Oak.
|On approach the tree looked big alright, but it wasn't until I was under it that I felt truly enveloped.|
|I arrived early and was glad to have alone time, to feel the quiet, breathe the cool air in the trees' massive shadow, and to take in the sheer s-i-z-e of the limbs. The crowds arrived within 30 minutes and I didn't want them in my viewfinder. |
|Except this girl, in my parting shot. I liked the way she leaned toward the tree. The width of the trunk is 25 feet--WOW.|
Here's a link to some history on the Angel Oak, or "The Tree" as it's called by the locals.
