Enter the Awesome Tree Contest

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 1.26.06 PMIt’s that time of year again and soon, the leaves will turn color. If you like to photograph trees, consider entering the Awesome Tree Contest! You might win like I did two years ago when I snapped this photo of a “gnarly tree” outside J Crew on Greenwich Avenue!

This is also something nice to work on with your kids and give them an appreciation for nature.
