What is it about this tree?

You know how you come across something and you just can’t put your finger on it but something is telling you to photograph that subject? Well I had that feeling this past weekend when I stumbled upon this tree. I don’t know what it was but something kept calling to me to photograph the tree. Now it had no leaves, surrounded by houses and a fence, but nonetheless I had to do something. The great puffy clouds were still around so i clicked a couple quick shots off and then continued down the road.


When I get back to the computer after a shoot, I usually have some idea of how I want to process my images. This time I didn’t. Not sure if that was just me or if it was the image. So here’s where I landed on and it’s not an answer. In those instances where you see something and something says to capture the image, is it your instinct saying that it is a good shot or is it your brain remembering another photograph previously seen saying to take the shot?
