Capture What Counts Photography

Day 158 – Black & White Magic

Maybe it’s the gray weather we’re having here in the N KY, but I am in a black and white mood today.  I took another photo of the “magical” trees and added a little Holga style to it in Picnik.  I really like how it came out.  I really like these trees, too.  🙂

    I love the black and white. I believe your “magical” trees are sycamores. Sycamores have white bark and are usually found within 100 yards of water. Native Americans used them to find water as they traveled across the land. There is folklore surrounding sycamore trees, but I can’t remember the whole story.

    • I’m don’t think they are sycamores due to the leaves. They look like tiny little fans. Sycamore leaves look more like oak or maple leaves. Whatever they are, I think they’re awesome. But now I’m going to have to research the sycamore tree to find out about it! 🙂
