I didn’t get paid to take these; my parents just had some dead trees that needed to be taken care of. That said, if any tree services are looking for photos for their website, CALL ME. I would love to shoot more pictures like this.
Mayer Tree Service was here for two days and I found the whole tree removal process so captivating that I barely got any work done. Watching — and photographing — something get chainsawed apart bit by bit is surprisingly pleasant. I don’t often find myself favoring vertical compositions, but I guess it makes sense for a subject like this.
