Theme Day -- Edges



The trunk of this oak tree seems to be creeping over the edge of the sidewalk in this picture I took on the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee. The first day of the month is Theme Day for the City Daily Photo Community. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

It shows just how tough trees can be.

Darla said...

I wonder if the tree roots feel all boxed in?

JM said...

Very clever entry on the theme, Lois. I forgot it this month... :-)

This is mother nature's version of "don't fence me in."

Pam said...

The sidewalk needs to step aside and make room for the roots to roam.. nice one, Lois.

hugs,

A very creative post for theme day, Lois. You have a good eye!

Re your comment on Ocala: I was just kidding about everything going better with Coke. :-)

This guy is oozing over the 'edge'. Good find. MB

Just can't stop a tree! Great shot Lois.

Good morning, Lois! I love this photo--trees have such a wonderful way with sidewalks. I think now and then, they get a yen to walk on the sidewalk. Tch tch tch...

(grin)

This is a very good photo and I like your take on the theme. Very clever. The overgrown bit looks a little like a turtle.

Oak vs stone... slowly 1-0!

That is an unusual interpretation, Lois. You need to go out there with a sledge hammer to help the old guy out.

Very interesting picture. Looks like this Oak tree is as old as me.

your photo sort of reminds of the very old movie called the blob. it looks like a thick liquid spilling onto the sidewalk

Leave nature alone, and it almost tends to take over. Good thing.

A wonderful theme day photo! It does seem to be creeping onto the sidewalk!

The tree is walking on the sidewalk too. Wonderful realisation of the theme, this really caught my eye!
