OLD STUMP - new life

Back before we had digital photography, one actually had to have multiple shots developed in order to see what a shot would look like from different angles.  I know it sounds crazy to you young folks.

 New life from a burned out log.
The new Cedar is oblivious to how precarious its place is, perched in the middle of a river.

I thought it would be appropriate to share these here since I have already written a number of posts about old stumps and have even been using them as planters.

These shots are from 1992; their symbolization of the circle of life has clearly appealed to me for a long time.


  1. It's amazing how tenacious new life can be, and of course optimistic, too. So much life can spring up around a nurse log. After one spring flood, it was probably wishing that it had picked the forest log, instead of the river log.

    1. Optimistic is a great way to describe this tree!
