Palm trees of Petaluma

Even though this is a straight on shot, I’m not including it in the ongoing “straight on” series. Following the pattern, that series needs to be more intimate–more tightly framed. In my around town walking range, “intimate” straight on shots are hard to find. This image, on the other hand, satisfies a request from my wife Maggie. She suggested that I do a “palm trees of Petaluma” series. OK, Maggie, here’s the first.

Here are a couple of Petaluma views taken on different days while out and about in the home town.
