There’s just something fascinating about roots and trees

I’m constantly drawn to trees and roots. They just fascinate me with their shapes and sometimes alien forms and textures.

I’ve been walking by these for years when going climbing at Exit 38. I finally stopped to take some HDR photos last weekend. I also stopped to photograph this tree stump which I see as a metaphor for the struggle between man and nature or maybe better, mans attempts to dominate nature…

Tell me what you think.

Addicted to Cracks

Posted in Creativity with tags , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

Over the last year I’ve been attracted to photographing cracks in sidewalks, streets, walls… whatever.  Here are a few of my newest “Cracks In Pavement” series.

To me the images are about urban decay or possibly the nature of life… or the life of nature… even in those inanimate objects like a concrete sidewalk.  They have a life too. Everything deteriorates.

Tell me what you think.
