Buildings Seen Through Trees.
On my trips to Manhattan, and my walks up and down Fifth Avenue, I have been taken with views of buildings as seen through trees. I am not sure why I am seeing these pictures this year, but I can't help myself. I think it has to do with seeing the structure of the trees without their leaves, with the added complexity of the buildings as background. What was fun was on this visit was to find a painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art by Paul Cezanne, titled "Trees and Houses near the Jas de Bouffan, 1885" My photographs are not unlike this painting in some ways. Crazy, huh?
