‘…that subtle something, that quality of air that emanates from old trees…’ Robert Louis Stevenson

Whilst not without its perils, there is
something magical about the close
proximity of trees and architecture.
In one of these images, taken in Austin
Texas, the writhing mass of boughs
appears to extrude from the house.
In another, wavering lines of branches
reach protectively over the roof pitch,
as though shielding it. Emotion resides
in this intersection between two complex
universes: the domestic and the arboreal,
the orthogonal and the organic.
