Invaders From Space



I loved the space ship look of this pair of parking lot lights. Against the blue sky, they create a simple but strong image. I thought about photoshopping out the pole to really make it look strange, but thought it would just look cheesy.

I thought this was a good match for the top of the pine tree in the lower photo. That's all the greenery on the whole pine tree; just that little bit.

The tree was very tall and tortured looking and I thought it had a look sort of like those little Japanese trees that folks trim very carefully. I can't think of their name right off the top of my head.

Bonsai. That's what I was reminded of.


I did my usual Sunday Picture Post on my other blog today if y'all want to go over there and take a look.

Have a great Sunday!

I think you mean bonsai.

Yes, the top photo definitely has a "War of the Worlds" look to it.
