I camped at Sequoia National Park over the weekend. I look forward to outdoorsy excursions as an opportunity to take photos. On this trip, I was particularly fascinated by tree trunk patterns, whether cross-sections or on the bark. I wanted my photos to examine my subject trees at a level different from the standard Whole tree. They aren't quite micro-worlds, but perhaps they are relatively mini-worlds, on the scale of giant sequoias.
