This mini-series of city trees reminds me again of that Dorothea Lange quote “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”. None of these images had required me to make a special effort regarding location. No, the only energy I had to invest was to lift my head and open my eyes, maybe cast away banal thoughts and silence that everworking categorizing machine between my ears.

I am grateful for that state of heightened (or should I say non-subdued?) awareness that photography teaches me.
