photoblog image Three Trees Two

Three Trees Two

Please read below:

Because of the pestering of VisualVault (and now Matt!) who enjoy teasing me about a photograph that I posted showing three tree trunks a few weeks back (here), along with the comments posted over the last few days I dedicate this photograph 'Three Trees Two'  to them.

This is a boring picture, and I'm not expecting anyone to be wow'ed by it. I did, however, think the last Three Trees picture I posted was nice dispite the comments I got! This has had no post processing done to it either as I just wanted to put it up for the fun of it. I'm posting it more as a joke than anything -- for their amusement. Please do check back in tomorrow. : )

VisualVault, I better get a good comment from you after doing this! ;)

An absolutely stunning treatment that speaks to the simplicity of nature and the fundamental goodness of the colors green and brown. The richness of the dirt at the foot of the trees is representative of feminine fertility while the upthrusting trunks are a commentary on our male dominated society. Or I could be talking out of my a**. Well done Iain
A good comment? you want a comment? you think your so called 'masterpiece' is worthy of a comment? do ya now punk? do ya? well i guess i better leave one then...

I think Matt has started to explore the depth of this image, but stopped short before exploring the true depth of the image. As Matt started to explain, this is an exploration piece into the contrast between the feminine and the masculine in our largely male dominated society. The large potion of the image that is filled with the tree trunks represents this dominance over society, while the rich earth, symbolizing femininity has been crushed under the weight of the trees, and even tho it may support and nurture the masculine trees, it is given little consideration in the image. The ground covered thickly with healthy green grass is a further representation of the strong role that the feminine nature plays in supporting and sustaining life, by providing a visually pleasing surroundings for the trees to take root and grow in. The masculine element in this image is portrayed as simply dominant and powerful, supported at the roots by his feminine companion, but reaching for the sky of his own determination and never looking back, but always trusting that she will be there to keep him firmly grounded...
you two are just nuts wink
An interesting shot.
But what are Matt and Visual Vault going on about?!?!?!
