Beneath the Buttonwood

–Buttonwood bark in a bright sun, strewn upon the sidewalk by a recent storm. (Buttonwood is another name for sycamore, also called a plane tree.)

This is one of my favorites.

What the camera saw:
beneath the buttonwood, as shot

Almost home after a walk (taking pictures), I spied this little arrangement. Because of the recent storm, the sycamores had made a mess, of course.

As always, I photograph what I find and stage nothing. Although I’m not beyond occasionally removing something small that seems very out-of-place and would mar an otherwise good picture, that was unnecessary here. This is the way it lay. I just chose the point of view.
