If trees could talk

There's a cemetery right by my house where I go to walk my dog often. There's a small horse barn on one side of it and the rest is surrounded by woods. It's quiet and is a nice place to go and think or just be. There are also many old oak trees including this one that I've photographed before.

 

This was taken using a LeClic 35mm plastic camera that my son bought at a garage sale when he was about 7. He paid 10 cents for it. I found it recently and used it at my brothers house for Thanksgiving photos to get an instant, vintage, crappy holiday family photo feel which it provided nicely. This is the first time I've tried b&w with it. Part of the plastic body gets in the way of the lens and gives a nice blurred edge effect. I used a red R60 filter in front of the lens.
