While I tend to only shoot images with an obvious subject or subjects these days, I’m still sometimes fascinated with images that focus on patterns or textures. This was taken back in my early days with my first camera, through a window of my car idling on the side of US2 in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. (Some people stake out criminals, some of us stake out nature.) I really love the naturally black and white feel of this, and the contrast created by the white/black of each small branch layered through it. Depending on how you move your eye, you can also find stronger movement lines from lower left to upper right, as well as the vertical of the main tree trunks.
