touch wood

i am not normally a fan of television commercials.  a team has to be extremely punchy, witty and artistic to move me in any way.  so you will understand my admiration for the precision, dedication and utter genius of this japanese smartphone commerical. the team engineered a massive xylophone to run down the slope of a forest hill. a wooden ball, rolling down the length of said instrument plays Bach’s jesu, joy of man’s desiring! amazing – yes.

the phone isn’t hard on the eyes either *wink*

a walk in the trees

how incredibly beautiful is this: a path in the forest by architect tetsuo kondo was a temporary installation in the kadriorg park near tallinn, estonia.

tree portraits

i am very taken with this collection of tree photographs by south korean photographer myoung ho lee.  the series is a collection of various solitary trees shot against a white backdrop standing out in nature.

where giants fall…

this image renders me simultaneously awestruck and quietly sad…

tree sketches

i love the idea and execution behind these tree drawings by british artist tim knowles. the perfect expression of nature art.

ode to the cherry blossom…

thank you, spring!  my favourite tree is in full bloom – the cherry tree.  and after an hour’s jog to zoo lake this morning, filled with white and pink blossoms, my chest is glowing and, try as i might, i can’t seem to blot the silly grin from my lips!
