Racines

You sometimes have to be careful where you tread on Avenue de Paris! I love tree roots!

Il faut parfois regarder où l'on met les pieds avenue de Paris. J'adore voir les racines !

Like something out of a sci-fi movie. They're taking over!

They could really trip you up!
What nice patterns they make.

I love them!! What a great capture, too!! Hope your weekend is going well,
Ciel!

That's not a good thing, Ciel. We had great big water oaks in our yard at our old house in Ocala and their roots could tear up walks, driveways, even foundations.

You just like the design and photo opportunities! Sheesh! ;-)

Meghan said...

They certainly are persistent. You'd think they'd grow down into the ground.

That's really neat, I like the pattern in the sidewalk.

Jack said...

This is unexpected. That makes for hazardous walking conditions.

I admire their strength.

this is quite a bold root. usually they stay just under the surface as they disrupt the walkway...not this one.

Its so amazing the strength of a tree root system, the places roots pop through can be quite astounding!

Tanya Breese said...

i would be the one to trip on it ;)

It is a great picture. I fell out of love with tree roots when we had to replace our driveway. :(

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Oh wow! Looks like they could cause quite a trip :)

VP said...

Quite common here too, often without the tree roots...

Loree said...

Oh my, those are some strong roots.

Don't go tripping over them, now. You would fall on your pretty face. Ouch.

I am going to have to investigate that Kentucky line of clothes or accessories. Very pretty. MB

Kentucky Rain, I mean.

I love those beautiful roots, even if you must step carefully:) Stronger than anything!

JM said...

Love the power of nature!

SRQ said...

It's cool looking....but, what a trip hazard.

Karl Demetz said...

Very nice shot, Ciel, but they are also a little dangerous...
