We have this dangerously tall pine tree in our backyard. I suspect it's been there for 40+ years, planted by the first owner of our house. We enjoyed its look and shades, but it's starting to cause concerns. Its roots are lifting the ground causing cracks in the brick planter walls and the block walls between us and our neighbor in the back. Also, it's naturally leaning toward the house, so whenever there are strong winds, we're afraid that it will one day crash into the house. Yesterday, a landscape company came and removed it for us. One guy start off by trimming all the branches as he climbs higher and higher, then he finally start chopping the main trunk from the top in pieces. Finally, they bring in the root grinder, a heavy machinery, to grind out the bottom trunk and roots about a foot into the ground. Our yard looks bigger and brighter now, but I do miss the tree.
My Journey into Leica...
A path not to be taken lightly, not without reservations, and not without dedication, but the results can be sweet, OH SO SWEET! This is a documentation of my trials and tribulations into the world of Leica Rangefinder Photography, and I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me.
