Our World Tuesday

It's time once again for Our World Tuesday, a weekly meme that encourages bloggers to share images of their world. It's a great way to get a glimpse of life through the eyes of others! You can find out more about it here. Even if you don't participate, I encourage you to take a look at the intriguing photos that bloggers from around the world share each week.

I chose today's photo not because it's particularly beautiful but because I like the composition. It's the trunk of a tree as seen through the slats in my neighbor's fence. I like the perspective—the way either the tree or the fence stands out to the eye, depending on which one you choose to focus on.
 
 
Wishing you a Tuesday filled with unexpected surprises. ☺

  9. I was drawn to the tree, but since you mentioned the slats, I took the time to focus on those. Very nice picture!

    1. Thanks a lot, Betty. I try hard to look around for things that are interesting and maybe a little unusual. :)

  11. That is a very interesting photo. I've never thought of doing that before, yet by taking a photo that way you can see more of the bark design, rather than be taken in by the whole tree.

    1. Very true. It's amazing how much of an object we miss until we slow down and really focus on the details.

  15. I just discovered your blog via Rebecca's blog. I love your header so much!! :) And I love that you posted a picture of a tree, which is totally what I saw first. When I was a kid, a huge maple tree stood outside my window and threw the most gorgeous shadows over my walls. My other favorite tree was a Chestnut tree that had perfect climbing branches. I moved into my new place fairly recently (in a new city) and the people who lived here before, apparently, were tree-phobic. It's sweet to plant some new, scrawny trees though. It's sweet to see them bloom this spring. What do you write?

    1. I'm glad you stopped by! My friend Tara made my header; I'm in love with it, too. ☺

      About trees: they're my favorite thing to photograph, especially in the winter when the branches are bare. I love your tree stories. When I was a kid, a pine tree stood outside my bedroom window. It was a great tree; I used to lie on my bed and look out at and dream... :) Good luck with your new trees. Yes, they're beautiful when they bloom.

      I write poetry, mainly. Are you a writer, too?

    2. Pine trees are fabulous! I love how tall and furry they are. :)

      I write middle grade fiction. I sometimes write other things as well, but mg is currently making my heart happiest.

    3. That's great! I've written a bit of middle grade fiction, too. Now that my son is starting to read, I'm finding myself wanting to write for younger audiences. :)

  16. What a cool picture. You are so imaginative!

  17. That made a great picture. As you say it depends what you focus on as to what you see. The same with life.

  18. This reminds me of those super-close-up photos of objects and you're supposed to guess what they are. I always enjoy that. Had I not read your explanation, I would have thought it was a super-close-up of a chain necklace. LOL

  19. Wow, great idea for a photo! Impressed with you lady!

  26. Now that is a very cool picture! We used to have this weeping willow tree in my front yard and it had some twisted branches and was really a beautiful tree, unless you were mowing the lawn... :)

    1. I've often wondered how it must be to mow beneath those trees. ☺

      Thanks, Krista.
