Monochromatic Monday on a Tree Tuesday While Making This a Thoughtful Daily Post

Image was taken by myself on my cellphone.

I have been working to get back to posting daily, but it seems to always be on @heyhaveyamet, @steemterminal, or the new @steem-aide accounts, but never on here. So I decided I was going to give in and do #monochromemonday which was created by @old-Guy-photos; then I realized it was @old-Guy-photos #treetuesday. So, gonna do two things at once today.

Image was taken by myself on my cellphone.

Right in front of our trailer on either side of the driveway are two Oak trees. I just love how they look next to each other; the sentinels of my neighborhood. I always feel like I am being welcomed home as we drive between then. They are old, more than 25 years because the place we live was set up 25 years ago. The owner told us that the whole area was filled with oak trees, but his father cleared out a lot of it to make farmland. Unfortunately, his father passed away before having a chance to finish, so the landlord turned this area into a very pretty trailer park. There are a lot of trees and plenty of shade.

A dear friend of mine @wesphilbin has started a project called #thoughtfuldailypost and I have been trying to join him in this project because I believe it is helping to bring some positiveness into the world of Steem; at least fo the neighborhood I seem to reside. So, Wes, this one is for you.

John Muir said, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” If anyone has found themselves on a walk along a tree-lined street, shaded hiking trail, or a tree-filled park, they will know there is not only a coolness that happens, but there is a moment of calm that can come over them. I often attribute this with the fact that they are breathing in the carbon dioxide I am expelling while I, in turn, breath in the oxygen they are letting go of. You do not get this from your house, car, or workplace; you only get it from green plants. I believe tress produces more oxygen more than anything else in your yard and so why wouldn't you want to commune with these giants. They are important to our survival so why not take care of them and appreciate what they do for us?

I wonder what you were telling in johns ear

I was thanking him for all the amazing work he did! Seriously, that is exactly what I was saying. Then I hugged the fire out of him!

A great way to combine three challenges into one and trees are they say the last Ng’s of our plant and walking through a first is alway so refreshing for me

I really enjoyed doing this one. Since we are moving, the trees will change and so I will have to learn something new from them.

GReta I do love tree shots in Ono or color and i am sure wherever you move to there will be plenty of trees for new shots

Thank you so much. I wasn't sure how the black and white was going to turn out, but it came out well.

This was a wonderful addition to my #thoughtfuldailypost, let alone #monochromemonday and #treetuesday!

You do not get this from your house, car, or workplace; you only get it from green plants.

Exactly!! Remember being young (haha) and riding bikes for HOURS!!! You can see SO much this way, and yes... the give and take we have with the environment, is such a beautiful thing... breath for breath... life for life... Beautiful photos you have shared here, my friend... and thank Scott for a wonderful photo with you and John Muir...

Thank you. I haven't done B&W before so I wasn't sure it was going to look correct.

Howdy Ren! Great post, wonderful photos and trees, added wisdom. Holy smokes with all those accounts going on I don't know how you have time for anything!

We went to the new location we will be living within a week and there are so many wonderful trees and options to do some great photos. I just hope we can get everything done.

Howdy Ren! Oh that sounds wonderful! I'm sure you'll get it done.
