Black and white trees

Earlier today I went searching through my archive of photographs to find some that I could print onto fabric to use in a piece of work I'm currently working on.

I'm posting two from the large selection I found - I take so many. These were taken before the recent surge of spring growth as I wanted their bare bones.The following are two of my favourites, converted into black and white and enhanced in photoshop.




With all this black and white, I seem to be harking back more and more to my teacher training graphic art days - funny where the mind takes you ...

    1. I will post when it's done. I'm off to Scotland for 10 relaxing days now so should have time to stitch when I'm away.

    1. I love trees at this time of year, in young leaf, but to photograph, there's nothing like the shapes you get when they're bare of leaves.
