Random Photo #4: looking up at the sky

2021 Random Photo Series

As a way of rounding out the year, I have decided to share 3 random photos from my phone each week, along with a discussion about why I took the picture. This might give you a sense of how I think and who I am.

We spend an awful lot of time looking down, or looking ahead, or even looking back. But how often do we look up?

When we look up we can see so many remarkable things: cloud formations, birds, planes, (Superman), and the fine lace tracery of tree branches.

The fine, lace like quality of the image when we look up at the sky through the branches of a tree in winter or spring when the leaves have fallen, or the new growth hasn’t quite come in yet is beautiful. The organic tracery of tree branches sketches a pattern against the sky that won’t be repeated anywhere else with any other tree.

Like a snow flake, the tracery of a tree is unique, one of a kind.

If we are lucky, we might also see birds’ nests, but that won’t always be the case.

Either way, looking up can give us a perspective on the world that brightens our day and connects us to nature, even in the suburbs or the city.
