While visiting the University of Virginia’s College at Wise (UVA-Wise), I was caught without my camera.  I did however have my new Galaxy 9 and without knowing anything about the phone or it’s camera settings, snapped this image of a sculpture of Thomas Jefferson.

Lonely ?

I find a certain poignancy in images like this. Perhaps it’s because I have a tendency to grant trees human feelings-and why shouldn’t I ?  Recent research has revealed that trees do communicate*, and what is communication but a sharing of knowledge? And if trees can know things it’s not much of a stretch that they can feel things, too.

So, is it wrong for me to believe that his lone tree might actually be lonely?

I find it difficult to ignore patterns, textures and light-play when looking for potential photographs. Add a small dose of mystery and I’m hooked.

I’m not quite sure why the owners of this restaurant chose to fence it off from the sidewalk. Was it to keep patrons from leaving without paying? Or, perhaps it’s a case of not wanting to have their tables and chairs stolen; in that case it’s like closing the gate when the horse is already gone.

Pentax K5IIs with 15mm lens. The challenge here was getting everything lined up to my satisfaction, made more difficult by the wide lens.
