I spotted this image on NW Market Street yesterday. In my peripheral vision it looked like a tree, but since few hardwoods have begun to leaf out in this unusually cold spring, my sub-conscious mind made me do a double-take. I made a U turn to get a better look, parked my car, and in the narrow grass strip between the road and sidewalk, began shooting.
And next to it, a slightly more ominous Shadow Tree.
As I was framing the 3rd shot of the first tree, a cloud covered the sun, and the illusions were gone.
