Sleeping Man: Grandpa Plane Tree

I love trees, and love the patterns and subtle colors in tree bark. While photographing the grizzled, much-pruned trees in the Music Concourse of Golden Gate Park, I zoomed in to check the sharpness of one exposure and was delighted to see, in the close crop, the Churchillian face of a sleeping man. Disney’s “Pocahantas” may lay claim to Grandmother Willow, but Golden Gate Park apparently boasts its own Grandpa Plane Tree.
