This photo, taken on the Central Coast of California, reminds me of the vast plains of Africa. Of course the tree would be an acacia rather than an oak and there would be a pride of Lions near it’s base.
Most residences and many visitors of San Luis Obispo, CA have seen this strange tourist attraction but for all the rest of you I wanted to share. Both sides of the alley, which is 15 feet high and 70 feet long, is literally covered by gum. I happened to park right in front of it this morning and even though I’ve seen it hundreds of times I had not shot it. Now I have.
I read an article this past weekend about the use of a vanishing point in photographic composition. I had seen it but didn’t know what it was called. Armed with this new term I went out to see if I could do it. I’m sure these kind of shots are very common but this is my first so I wanted to post La Purisima Mission Lompoc, California.
