Stumped

I think all photographers, amateur or professional, have certain subject matter that they are constantly drawn to.  For instance, I love to photograph old, run down buildings, sunsets, waterfalls and wildlife, just to name a few.

A more random concept that I am drawn to is when something doesn’t belong.  That’s why I just had to have a shot of this stump.  I was walking along a little river in a wildlife sanctuary where I expected to see an abundance of lily pads, frogs, and ducks, when all of a sudden out of nowhere appeared this stump with new growth sticking out the top.  There were no other trees nearby, and it just seemed so out of place, and in my mind that became a perfect photo op.

    I agree – the things that don’t belong are fascinating. Love your “stump” photo. It’s like a flower that grows between the cracks in the sidewalk,, or the old classic fiction, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” Thanks for sharing this. The photo is very special.

    • Thank you Dor. This is exactly why I love the blogging world so much. People actually understand me! Everyone in my house would just look at this picture and say, “what the heck did you take a picture of that for?”. LOL. And, I’m so glad you brought up “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”. Being the avid reader that I am, I am ashamed to say that I don’t think I have ever read that book, but I have always wanted to. So, after reading your comment, I promptly downloaded it for my ebook reader!! Thanks again 🙂

    Was it actually regrowing–is that a word? I love seeing stuff like that. Nature is a wonderful mystery.
