Penang Trees

Penang Trees, originally uploaded by fine-grain.

The “Penang Trees” Photography Series, 2007, is a Black & White, Infrared Images collection, featuring, of course, Penang Trees.

These images show many amazing details that I’ve discovered just by looking upward into the trees of Penang.

Details is what this Series is about.  I’m attempting to illustrate with these images, what I see when looking up into the trees of Penang.

Typically we spend most of the time looking out in front of us; and, I suppose forward looking is a wise thing to do, otherwise, we would be tripping and falling a lot of the time.

By the way:  This reminds me of one of a favorite quotes that Brooks Jensen says quite often:  “Even those people who fall flat on their faces, are still moving forward!”  Very wise advice!

Nevertheless, one day, I stopped and decided to take a more serious look at the lines, the angles, the contrast and patterns the trees made, and this took my focus away from what was in front of me, and moved my focus up into the great heights of the tropical trees of Penang.

I hope you enjoy this collage. This is an on-going project, so, I will be high-lighting more tree photographs…soon.
