Andy's Angles: Holding on to Yesterday


I always liked oak trees.  Big.  Majestic.  And acorns!

Another of the plusses, is the mighty oaks hang on to their leaves, sometimes until the new growth arrives in the spring.

Yes, the leaves can be brown and nasty, crispy, crinkled, and curled...  but they survive through the harshest of times, and there is a lot to be said for that.

Don't ask me why, but the "survival" aspect hit me hard a couple of weeks ago, while I was walking toward my car, after photographing a creek in east Scranton.  We often overlook that.  

They might be unsightly, but give credit to the oak leaves for weathering the storms.
