Gnarly River Oak
My first photos for this 3d technique. The camera tilts and goes out of plane, moving in uneven steps as the idea evolves over its execution. That was disturbing in the wider angle views, but close up and focused on this odd lichen face, the excursions add to a third axis.
The bridge just above this spot seems a strategic secret, a way across the river that is not commonly known. I imagined a rickety old hay cart affair tucked into the nook of a dirt road. It is actually just short of a highway going across, though with a certain pastoral flavor, young boys wheeling their bicycles in lazy loops past the blueberry farm on the first warm day of spring.
As I was leaving, another car pulled in to the landing. I watched cautiously to see what they might be up to. Did then notice the deer haunch? Was it theirs? They did not wave. And then, while turning the bend up to the highway, yet another car was coming in. They were coming in rather fast, and I pulled well into the edge of the turn-out to let them past. Intent on their own turf, they did not notice me until the turn: 'what the fuck!' they yelled in surprise.
