I don't know why I am so obsessed with these trees, but I live in constant awe/fear of them. On the one hand, they just want to grow and be merry, but they have been trimmed into a grotesque shape to suit our electrical needs.
On the other hand, they look like they are transplants from Return to Oz, ready to murder at a moment's notice.
I snapped these shots when stuck behind a school bus or something equally irritating that involved children, and I was especially drawn to the curly branch of this tree:
It's curly and awesome, and yet TERRIFYING.
