Theme Thursday: Bend

Posted on Thursday, June 17th, 2004

Dave!I first thought that this week's Theme Thursday of "bend" would be a piece of cake because two things immediately came to mind: 1) The three trees in front of the Hometown Market that bend at an odd angle for some unknown reason, and 2) The group of lilies in front of the dentist office that are trapped under a bushy tree and have had to bend as they grow to reach the sunlight. I walk by them often, and have noticed them several times, so no problem right?

Wrong. The trees made for a kind of boring shot, and the lilies could not be photographed at an angle so that you could see how they are all bent over! That's when I remembered that the entire city is built on a bend in the Wenatchee River, and decided to give that a try...

Not the best shot... I don't have my polarizer and it's really the wrong time of day to try and shoot it. Oh well.

Here are my rejected shots...

Theme Thursday: Bend

Note that the telephone pole and the street lamp are straight... the trees really do bend like that, and it's a bit more impressive as you approach them. Kind of sad that nobody attempted to correct this problem as they were growing up, because they're nice, healthy trees otherwise. My guess is that the one on the right got blown over or something, and is now taking the other two with it!

Theme Thursday: Bend

The yellow in these flowers is luminous... almost painful to look at... in real life. A pity that there is only so much a photograph can capture.
