"Still Graceful After All These Years" (9-2-18 002v5) was just fussed from a pic taken only a few days ago. It's right around the corner from the market I often walk to in Isla Vista. For ages I've thought to take pix of it, but it's setting makes that quite a challenge. As does the lighting during the time of day I'm always walking by it. However, I decided to give it a shot (literally, several shots). This crop is actually a compromise. I much prefer the shots that take in the entire tree. However, that then has to include a bunch of distracting bushes on the left, and a white R.V. on right. I have versions attempting to deal with these distractions but tend to think this more cropped in close shape is better. If not all that great. :-) And, yes, I do kinda, sorta identify with this old tree, hoping there's some grace left in this old broad, too.
