Twisted Santa Monica, A Photograph

“They are dragged to the withered bracken by the load, 
And they seem not to break; though once they are bowed 
So low for long, they never right themselves.” 
– Robert Frost

I spent last weekend on a mini-getaway in Santa Monica.  Before I left I told myself I would only take five photographs the entire four days.  It was a challenge as I usually take multiple shots and then decide which I like better.  This challenge to myself was to not just point and snap, but search for the perfect subject and then take only one photograph of it.  This is what I came away with….just the one…

Most people in Southern California look the roughly the same, so I couldn’t find any real interesting subjects in humans.  The trees however, were so cool the way they seemed to emerge from the dirt like a giant earth worm, then settle back in, that I used all of my five shots just on them.
