Wordless Wednesday: Perspective

I was sitting in my neighborhood park taking some nature photos and discovered how important perspective is and why one shouldn't draw conclusions too quickly.

At first I noticed a very lush tree. Looks full and healthy.

Then I noticed a bald spot. Sometimes tree have some dead branches. No big deal.

So I walked around and noticed my first impression was not accurate.


This tree looked fine, but most of the branches are dead.
Back to my starting point.

Good observation, thanks for drawing the attention. :)

I know trees have to drop those leaves, but how in the world that particular tree managed to drop them from just one side is a mystery. One of nature's practical jokes, I imagine...

Guess it was just more windy on one side? Lovely shots though.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

keith, jewels: The leaves are missing because of dead branches.

Happy WW! I couldn't get beyond your first photo in the series ... those tennis shoes are about as CLEAN as possible without coming straight outta da box! (smile)

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier today. I invite your blog readers to see how the economic crisis in America will impact trick-or-treaters during Halloween on tomorrow night!

Great series! Come to think of it, how many of us do what you just did? Not many, most of us are very pre-occupied over some things that we fail to see more of what's around us.
Thanks for stopping by mine earlier :)

Oh, by the way, the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia was built for the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the 12th century.

I love posts like this! You could also apply the same idea to the blog header image - just cut off the top half and you're no longer in the city. Keep on writing stuff like this - acknowledging multiple perspectives is a lost art. :)
