. the neighbors tree .

. our neighbors across the road (whose girls photos i just took, remember meghan and sarah?) had a rotten tree that recently fell over in one of the many storms we've had . the tree fell over on a rental mobile home they have on their property, but thankfully no one was hurt, just material damage . i stopped by today to take a few photos of the old rotted out tree . it has some cool textures .
