Past Squares #1

July Squares: Trees

Trees #11

Trees in snow. One of my earliest photos dating back to the mid 1970s. Photographed in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

Sometimes cropped to a panoramic format in the past I was a little surprised it worked as a square. Possibly my first photo to be printed and hung on people’s walls.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Tree Squares Month and is my day 1 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Two open Oriental Poppies in a Cheshire garden.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Open prompt. It’s a follow-up of sorts to my post for last week’s One Word Sunday prompt Closed, an Oriental Poppy bud.
