Palm studies

I've always had a fascination with palm trees growing up. They grow in the direction of the wind, they bend, they grow insanely tall at times, they shed, they can grow coconuts, and they have a very distinct shape.  There are people who's jobs it is to climb them and cut them back so the branches don't crush your car.  Palm trees are really crazy if you think about it, and they are also a sign of paradise.

I don't live in a place where I see them too often anymore, but when I do, they are all the more special.  During this week, I've been using the fiery branches for double exposure "experiments".
