Coney Island Ride, carousel poles, birthday candles. Hair in a twist. Lighthouse in Florida. A gnarled tree.
How fortunate my neighbors scheduled their trees to be trimmed,
The branches were growing into the side of their house.
After Steve moved the cars out of the garage and onto the street, I thought to myself- “hmmmm- People at Work, right in my driveway!” Perfect for an interesting photo shoot.

I thought it a good composition
Then she sent me the second photo and I could see some warm lights through the trees.
