BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TEXTURE – AN ANCIENT IRONWOOD TREE

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TEXTURE


One really old ironwood tree in Phoenix. Being well cared for by its owner, it was the largest ironwood I’ve ever seen. For your information, ironwood is so heavy, it doesn’t float. 

Three pictures, one ancient ironwood tree. I think ironwood trees are nothing but texture.

    1. It really was. It was HUGE. In the desert, pieces fall off, so they don’t get that big but whoever owned the property was taking really good care of it. It was amazing and who knows how old.

    1. I’m not sure you could. They are not as sturdy as they look. At least, not these ancient one. They snap and break pretty easily. The wood is useful for many things, I am told, but I’m not sure you can do much in them but build bird’s nests and admire them!

      1. Perhaps just a blanket “tent” draped over? Like the sort you can make in the house with a card table and a couple of chairs? 😀

  1. Fascinating shapes, Marilyn. You took some very interesting captures of it. I love all the edits, the sepia one a bit more than the other too. Thank you kindly.

    1. I was trying to knock out the background, but it was impossible. I blurred it a bit, but it was in the middle of a Phoenix suburb, so I was limited by reality. I hate reality. It’s ruining my world.
