The assignment; Me and the tree – your images

Graham A Stephen

Graham A Stephen – A self portrait taken today (June 8) amongst the trees on a woodland path through the grounds of Plas Newydd, a local National Trust property here in north Wales. Visit Graham’s blogs here and here.

Adrian Lewis

Adrian Lewis – “An Oak meets me in the autumn garden; 18 Nov 2013. I’m freely mobile but the tree is not – and I can speak but, as far as I know, the tree cannot – and therefore I must be the one doing the meeting and greeting? How did Gershwin put it? … ” It ain’t necessarily so … it ain’t necessarily so …” D800 with 15mm Sigma fisheye; 800 ISO; Color Efex Pro 4.” Visit Adrian’s blog here.

Jörg Kruth

Jörg Kruth – This is the self portrait I took very early in the morning on a walk in the woods. I generally like those kind of sharp contrasts and light focus. Location: Woods of Kirchberg, Germany. Visit Jörg’s blog here.

Harrie Nijland

Harrie Nijland – Location: Meijendel (A piece of rough nature, just behind the dunes, near a place called Wassenaar; and a little North of The Hague). Visit Harrie’s blog here.

Terje Hellesø

Terje Hellesø – A self portrait from Söderhamn, Sweden January 12, 2005. Samsung V5, 38mm, bl 6.7, 1/60 sek och 100 ISO. Visit Terjes blog here.

Kari Jeppesen

Kari Jeppesen – It was taken last Friday in Gulbenkian gardens, the place where I have all my favorite trees… and all the special lights… From my garden in Lisbon, Portugal. Visit Kari’s blog here.

I would like to thank you all for your contributions. Fantastic self portraits, I’m very impressed and it’s very interesting to see the variations too. I hope you all would like to partake in the next assignment; I don’t have any ideas yet – maybe some of you would like to come up with an idea? (in case you have an idea, just leave a suggestion in the comment field). Maybe those of you who didn’t partake in this assignment, would like to partake in the next? See you all and enjoy your week!

    1. I say: Oh yes, sounds familiar… I mean the running. I hope to see more self portraits from you in the future, Harrie. And thank you (from the bottom of my heart) for your contribution.

  1. Yes, thanks, Malin – a very good idea! I really like all of the images here but if I had to pick a favourite I think it would be Terje’s – though by a slight margin. It has wonderful feelings of grandeur, mystery and foreboding. Adrian
