Belle Isle Willows


Belle Isle is famous for its old warped willows. They are everywhere on the island.

And V, here is the same tree, a litle more "noir" for you.

Add this one to the "noir" tale of the two street scenes below. Someone meets a dangerous stranger near that tree...? Or...?

Love willows...we had a big Weeping Willow in our front yard when we lived in Dallas, but some bugs killed it and we had to cut it down! Boo!

A rather spooky photo, Mary, but beautiful at the same time! So cold looking up thar in Detroit!

Oh, this is wonderful!

Thanks, V, Jacon and Rose. V, I think I'd have fun making this very "noir!" What if I inverted it, for starters?

I used to climb a weeping willow when I was a kid, Jacob!

V said...

I see that dangerous stranger has met his doom!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

LOL! A bit of Noir! :-D

Strange, but intriguing.
Why are these willows so warped? Is it the wind from the lake?

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I'm not sure, willows (around here) all tend to look that way--they have fairly soft wood--so between the wind and constant breakage, that may be why.

Ha! Great, Mary, you are so creative!

Thanks, Stine. Tee hee, I had fun with this.
