I am loving these weekly themes (see Thematic Photographic on Carmi Levy's blog here).
They make me look at the world around me differently, and also send me looking back through photos I've already taken to see if any fit in.
So... branched. Hmm - trees (family and wooden); metal structures; rivers and creeks; cracks, in the ground, in the sky, in paths and buildings. Lots of different ideas there.
Here are a few that I've found for this theme.
This guy climbs up my sunroom wall. I love the way his feet branch into gripping toes:

These branching light holders decorate the main street of our small town:

I saw this beautiful bronze shield in the fantastic museum of Olympia, Greece, in April of this year:

These beautiful catenary arches are in the cellar/museum in Gaudi's 'La Pedrera'. I love everything Gaudi designed or built, so I really enjoyed my pilgrimage to Barcelona:

Finally, this "Wind Wand" sculpture, by Len Lye, dances like a long slim twig on the foreshore at New Plymouth, here in New Zealand

I've got quite a few tree photos I want to put up too, so maybe I'll be branching out and making another post later this week.
