Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Leaves and Trees; and Paula’s Thursday’s Special: Old

PAULA says: About Thursday’s Special: It is a ‘NON-CHALLENGE’ challenge that appeals to bloggers eager to wake up their creativity and show their own ideas and interpretation of the world. There are no themes, titles and techniques set for your expression, there are no limits and restrictions; no red tape whatsoever. 

CEE says: This current series is all about our glorious mother earth and nature.  I hope you have a lot of fun finding leaves and trees for this week.

The first photo was taken with my old iPhone3s a couple of years ago ergo the poor quality.  The rest of the pictures were taken using my iPhone5.


I’m guessing that this tree could be 200 to 300 years old. I say that by comparing it to a similar tree that is known to be 350 years old.

    What you talkin’ about poor quality!? The first one’s the best one… one of your bests. Love the grandeur of it which you captured perfectly, love the angle, and I love the composition even with the shadows.

    • Really! Oh, my! I just thought it looked a bit faded. Old camera phone and all. I am so glad you liked it and commented. I just love these old majestic trees! Thanks, Rommel! 🙂

    What a difference between the iPhone3s and iPhone5 color quality! Gorgeous photos all! FL does have some great jungle-like trees and foliage. Overall, this post brought back some good memories – I’ve lived in Clearwater and Orange City and visited many other parts of FL : )
