Photo Collections

We’re often drawn to the same subjects when we take photos.  Any time we see a garden, we head straightaway for the flowers.  We’ve taken way too many photos of seashells and rocky beaches.  We suspect we’re not alone here.

Is it mastery of subject material?  Some comfort we take in the beauty of the objects photographed?

On our trip, we’ve stepped out of our usual environment.  In New Zealand and Australia, we’ve been walking in ancient forests and admiring the many species of trees.  Others love to capture forests or leaves in their photos.  We happen to love the tree trunks, especially the varying textures of their bark.  Trunks are what we immediately see as we walk through the woods. They have become another photo collection in the making.

We don’t know if our tree trunk photos will be limited to an ANZAC collection.  Will other countries’ trees interest us as much?  Stay tuned…
