The Sticks

I have photographed these tree branches before. They are dead branches sawn off of an old Lilac tree, and I temporarily put them on the leaves under the Japanese maple tree. I didn't consciously arrange them this way - I just tossed them there. But for some reason the arrangement - the design they make - touches me in some unknown way. They have been lying there nearly a year and I can't bring myself to throw them away. I have photographed them on a couple of occasions, and posted them here at least once. So when I went out and saw them covered in snow, I was driven to photograph them again. This time the photograph may be about light and shadow, but I can't be sure.
