A constant across the seasons...

A constant across the seasons...

Over the past few years I have commuted to work through Greenwich Park. On the way to work I have often focused on an oak tree in the park which I found to be a stoic / monumental constant. I have always been meaning to do something with the photos I have taken of the tree and the effect changing of the changing of the seasons on it. The tree has always been an unchanging fixture with the environment around it in flux. This is everything from the sky, to the light around and the shadows cast by the tree and the colour of the grass. 

I was hoping to make this visual record as one image per month to produce a year of images albeit across a few years. What I found was there were some months like February where the atmospheric surrounds of the tree were simply stunning. I have limited myself to two images per month and also discovered that during the summer I wasn't as frequently photographing the park.

I must admit that this was finally prompted by the interesting exhibition Among the Trees which opened recently at the Hayward Gallery I wasn't entirely taken by all of the pieces in the show but it certainly made me think about trees and their place in the world.

Anyway here goes - hope you enjoy...
