I was looking at some old negatives recently that were taken when I was photographing with a 35 mm camera. Over time, I took a lot of pictures of this tree in West Virginia.  It was kind of graceful, sat off by itself and was often enveloped in fog early in the morning. But I lost interest in photographing it after the owners put one of those wooden Amish wells near “my” tree.

The old tree just isn’t the same any more.
