Every year my wife’s large, extended family camps at Carpinteria state beach. This year my immediate family’s schedule has been such that we can only be here one night. And in our rush to pack, I forgot my camera. Yes, me. The photographer. Forgot to bring a camera.
Meanwhile, every year for the past 10-odd years, I’ve taken a picture of this tree while camping. Not to break with tradition, I’m having to make do with my cellphone this year.
