red plane tree meander

this is the first of two. the other, which can be found elsewhere in my photostream goes all the way around the tree trunk, whereas this one only went half way round.

 

i made it on a tree that was standing opposite the front door of our house. we were living on the tip of a peninsula at the time, and almost all i did back then i did whithin a stone's throw of the front door.

 

it is made using pieces of scarlet oak leaves. at the time i thought they were maple leaves, but then, one day, i caught a gardener watering them, and asked him what kind of maple they were, and he soon put me to rights.

 

i really like how flickr shows wide pictures now.
