Local Trees are images taken in two places where I have lived, Capitola, California and Berlin, Germany. I began photographing trees as a visual focal point, limiting my peripheral vision to exclude the urban strip mall, condominium constructions, and vehicle teeming roadways. These photos portray the convergence of sight where details of shape, pattern and color come together to create a place of calmness and escape into imagination and a connection to nature as art. They address the complexities of form where whole is not important. I have paired these images between the two locations to emphasize commonalities.
