"Holding Up the Sky" (1-18-17 014v4) is another of those from a recent wandering through Anisqoyo Park in Isla Vista on a foggy mid-day. I've fussed a few OK "artsy" versions out of it, but I still like this straight forward one best. Nothing can really improve on what nature gives us. Yeah, I know I've made changes to nature simply by choosing which trees and at what angles to shoot. And then how to crop the pic. But this is closer to what I saw. Yep, and even what one sees involves visual editing and one's personal foreknowledge of "treeness" or one would see nothing but a confusing mass. Guess I have to admit to being in a very "stick close to the truth" mood, or rather, figure out the truth. Quite a task (smile). A bit like trying to first reach the sky, and then hold it up.
