I was at the river taking some pictures when out of nowhere a limb came down and snatched my camera. The trees had kidnapped my lens. They all took turns snapping photos of each other and themselves. They passed the camera to and fro and I was worried I would never see it again. But, after a bit, a birch tree handed back. The birch, handing me her business card with contact information, asked that I inform her when their pictures would be displayed. The email has been sent.
Visit my store. Visit my galleries.
that first image is byuuteeful. 🙂
The images are fantastic, but I have to admit that I love the funny story more.
Thanks glad you like my silly words.
I like the story more too. (that is how my brain works). But the pictures are great too.
One helluva a Birch 😉
Now, where did you ever get that idea,,,, quite smart………..
Thanks. It’s how my silly brain works.
It is so true about those pesky trees, they do literally snatch your camera away from you!
Yes! 🙂 But at least they gave it back to me.
Love the lighthearted writing, and the photographs are great! Wonderful creative post! ~Mary
Haha – that is so funny – and they are such brilliant photographers too! 😀
Thanks so much blue bee. 🙂
Great background story for great shots!
I love that you find beauty in things that the average person would pass by ! good job! Snow is so beautiful ❤
Lol, you are so silly! I was thinking of ya earlier, was walking to the store and it just started to snow but it was that fine sand looking snow so everything was coated with snow but it was so free flowing. When a car drove by it wasnt the usual tracks in snow, it was like a path was dusted by the wheels and long after the car was gone the snow was still blowing. I was like omggggg Seth needs to take pictures of this..lol
Great set, i love “feet” that one is amazing.
Ha. I would have been all over that scene. 😊 Thanks for thinking of me.
I love your playful writing! And, as always, beautiful pictures.
I’ll be a witness. 🙂
Alright. I’ll let you know when the depo is scheduled.
Hi! I love your blog and… this nomination is for you!
The trees are modeling for you.
Yes. They are camera hogs.
Ha ha, you have to admit they did a good job!
They did. 😊
The trees did a great job, up close and personal. Almost as good as you.
👍I think better than me. 😊
Always a great set of photos and the story today was excellent!
“Giving me the bark…..” LMAO!!! 🙂
Glad someone commented on that! I thought it was clever. 😉
Love the story that goes with the pictures! Made me smile!!
Glad! I love to make folks smile.
Love your sense of humor and the photos.
Some tall trees there. You would have had hard time getting your camera back if they had left it on the tree tops. Maybe that big old bird would have been needed to rescue it for you 🙂 Luckily the trees are your friends.
Yes I would have had to call in the bird! Thanks. 🙂
These shots are amazing!
Trees have so much character….
Yes they do. Thanks.
Those trees can be so impish! 🙂
Yes, they can be! Thanks.
Thank you so much. 🙂 Glad you like them.
Ditto the creative writing. Always love to read the description!
Thanks so much. Glad you like my silliness. 🙂
These are beautifully done!
Reblogged this on dressing glass and commented:
Enjoyed the beautiful perspective of trees and funny story!
That’s a cute story about the trees snatching your camera and taking pictures of each other — I got a chuckle out of that!
Pesky little… ahhmm.. big things those trees 🙂
Yes they surely are. Thanks.
I love your brand of humour 🙂
Thanks Henrietta. 🙂
The story made me chuckle and the pics are cool – thanks bud (and thanks for taking an interest in my blog too)
You are welcome. 🙂
Wonderful x there’s a film in there Seth!
Thanks.. Will you produce it for me? 🙂
lol…silliness is a good thing…I could see this as a children’s book…all about the pesky trees who have a penchant for snatching peoples cameras, with your photos as the pics they take!!! 😉
Thanks Heather– I’ll tell my sister. She is the writer, not me. 🙂
Once again a great gallery ….. never thought about taken photo of trees like this. Great …. my pick has to be – Holding hands
Clever! Love the root shot

Before I read the whole story, I thought you meant a tree branch fell a knocked the camera out of your hands…I’m glad that’s not the case 🙂 I really like the “Dancin and Groovin” shot and “The Posse” shot.
Thanks DZ 🙂 Me too.
Your story about the trees is so perfectly designed, not too fantasy nor too dull and realistic. It is like the mixture of green and blue to make turquoise. Just a touch of both reality and fantasy, and it is not too childish nor too boring and gray.
It’s funny how the birch gives you her business card. 🙂
This is my favorite, grasshoppa…… Obviously you get your creativity from me.
So this has to be it. Humm. I was wondering what grasshoppa meant. Ha.
You have to watch out for the trees!! But they sure took some lovely pictures!
Thanks. The trees are silly sometimes.
Yes they are! They always give me a hard time when I run through the woods – grabbing at me and tripping me up. Real tricksters! But they sure can be nice when its time for a nap!
Yes they do that to my pups too.
Those birches be good photographers! Fun post. 🙂
Yes those sons of birches. 🙂 funny
I can just see them with the camera, and the shots remind me of the strange angles and ultra close-ups we humans wake up to find on our phones after we party together. 🙂
Ha, yeah my inspiration. Not me of course. 😉
Oh, and never me either….of course. 🙂
Like that image, of the trees grabbing the camera and taking shots of the landscape, and of course themselves (i believe they are quite narcissistic in fact?) Bit cheeky handing you a business card, for pics taken with your own camera, but you have to admire their entrepreneurial flair. Very nice pictures too. (Please pass my compliments on, to the trees)
Thanks so much. I will indeed pass the compliments along to the birch. 🙂
