Well, five years have gone by and a few more inches of aluminum have been ingested by this old oak tree, living its life in super-slow motion (or, maybe we’re living too fast).
Being in a nature preserve, I imagine this tree will live and die right where it stands. But should this oak ever make its way to a lumber mill, the saw operator is in for a big surprise.
I’ll visit again in 2023. Stay tuned.
Something I’ve enjoyed greatly over the last few years is collaborating with friends around the world to create multiple-exposure photographs using 35mm film. After I exposed this roll of Adox Silvermax 100, I mailed it to my friend John in Australia, who gave it a second pass with his camera. It’s especially rewarding when you keep each other in the dark regarding the scenes that you captured, and finally see the happy accidents that result.
You can learn more by visiting the Swap-Stop International website.
(My thanks to John and Walter for making this possible.)
October 6, 2018: Not what I was expecting when I rolled into Texas, but I’m not complaining. I wish more states offered free produce.
