Ironically, I have been on vacation since Wednesday and find myself several days late, catching up on posting pictures and text for my 365 Project. :)
A photograph can easily change the context and freeze an event in time. Passing by the tree for the past month or so, I wondered why someone would do this to a beautiful 3-story tall tree. When I took this picture, I assumed an apparently tenacious vandal with a chainsaw did this.
In a coincidental turn of events, I took this picture a day before the city chopped this tree down. It is now a stump leveled to the ground. As with all things in our lives, within a few months, no one will remember this tree ever existed.
