Tag: I’m it!

This morning a blogosphere friend of mine, Carletta from Round the Bend, was Tagged with a challenge.  Here is the challenge:

Your Mission, should you choose to accept it:

1) Go to your photo files…Select the 6th photo folder

2) Select the 6th photo in that folder

2) Select the 6th photo in that folder

4) Then challenge 6 blog friends to do the same!

It’s one o’clock in the morning, so sure, why not take on a new challenge.  First I reviewed Carletta’s photograph and read her story.  Then I went digging into my digital files to find the sixth photo within the sixth folder.

Homeage to the fallen joshua trees

Remembering the fallen joshua trees

The story behind the photograph.  Ever since I took up the camera back in 2002 I have had a fascination with the many fallen joshua trees that can be found throughout the Mojave Desert.  They age in a unique way that I find captivating.  The smoothness of the trunk stripped by mother nature of its bark.  The fine hairs that cover the trunk.  A hollow core surrounded by the rings of the trunk.  Each and every joshua tree tells a story.  And now that I think about it, I recently read a blog post stating that the infamous tree pictured on the album cover of U2’s “The Joshua Tree” now lay fallen in the spot where the photograph was taken.  I believe I will have to search out this location and photograph the fallen joshua tree myself.  Perhaps this will turn into a photography essay project.

Well I must thank Carletta for passing this challenge onto me and unknwingly inspired me to do more storytelling.  And now I pt before you, my readers, this same challenge.  Please leave a comment so that I may visit your blogs and view your sixth photograph within your sixth file folder. 🙂
