January Tree

There is a street nearby that I absolutely love. Really, it could be any street, there’s nothing really outstanding about it, except for the fact that it is lined with trees. Now this a common sight around here except these are all deciduous trees. And every autumn they blaze into color around the same time. And every spring, they suddenly burst forth with leaves around the same time.

We have lived in this neighborhood since September 2010, so for four years now Samwise and I have driven down that street several times a week and I have watched the trees change through the year. So yesterday, when I was commenting on how much I like that street, Samwise suggested an idea and it seemed like a cool project. We’ll see if I can manage it — or rather manage to remember to do it — but I want to give it a try.

Every week, every Sunday, we will drive over there and I will take a picture from the same place. And I will post that picture on my blog. For a year, I will chronicle the change of seasons through these pictures. Maybe I’ll get bored partway through and stop, or maybe in a year I’ll have 52 pictures of the street from the same position. I guess we’ll find out!

Week 21: Today we had sunshine! What a surprise, and 60 degree weather! At noon, which is when I take most of the pics for the Year of Trees posts, you can see the sun right in the way at this point. I have no clue what that green light is toward the bottom–must have been some reflection the camera caught. And as a bonus, I’m including another picture below from Marymoore Park around here…yes, spring fever is on the way!

    This one is so beautiful. It seems to be saying Spring is on the way. Beautiful trees against the sky.

    I love this one! The tree branches almost seem to be hugging the sun. It’s a lovely perspective.
