Russian Olive #187 (Oct 2)

Russian Olive Tree along Washington Ave

Lots of olives on this particular tree, which is a bit rare.   Maybe not, though.  This could just be when this tree fruits, or olives.  

Did you realize that it is impossible for the naked eye to see a tree in this way? Standing under the branches like I was, every branch was in complete focus.  With a 200mm lens at f4 I get the little flying faeries floating around the edge of the frame.

Though, with my new and fancy bi-focals, I often see blurry floating faeries around the edge of my field of vision, mainly the lower half of my field of vision.  Damn bi-focals!

Sally, I don't think many people will get your obscure Captain Beefheart references, but I certainly appreciate them.

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
