I like how B&W pictures reduce things to simple lines and forms. Your mind isn't influenced by the endless variety of colors. Sometimes life asks to be looked at this way. When you can do this, in your mind, it's like being at a party where you can cut out all the conversations that are happening and listen to just one. I like that.

I found myself at Dawes Arboretum yesterday. If you live nearby and have never been, do make a visit. This Dawes guy loved trees and collected an awful lot of them suitable to the Ohio climate. He amassed one of the world's largest collection of holly bushes and trees. And pieced together a rather convincing Zen garden. Looking around, you can see that more than a few trees took a hit in a recent wind storm, but there's still plenty to take in. So here are some textures I gathered while there. Enjoy!
