This is my favorite tree to photograph in Buffalo. I met it in November 2011 and said a tearful goodbye to it in August 2013. During our short friendship, it was my muse and my friend for many photographs.
Forest Lawn Cemetery
I called this a 'bramble stick' because I didn't know what type of plant it was, but thought the texture was interesting.
Found in an abandoned lot in Buffalo, NY near the grain elevators.
