I have been awfully slack in recent weeks and have not shot anything of worth and decided to try and force myself to find a subject that I could get enthusiastic about. Detouring through the City Botanical Gardens early in the morning I found this fig, nicely lit from the side. I like the complex, almost abstract trunk that these trees develop, and the wonderfully textured bark - almost like an elephant's skin. This is not my usual architectural study, but I do like the strength of its form. (OM4, zuiko 50mm f3.5 macro, f8, HP5 @ 400)
