Photographer's Note

It is chestnut time once again. Our town has many protected chestnut trees that flower every spring, provide shade every summer, and drop large chestnuts ever autumn. By protected, I mean that the government has made it illegal to do basically anything to the trees. I love the trees and am generally grateful for the law, but about this time I wonder, as the tree that is right outside my window and drops chestnut bombs on my car - at 5 AM. Meanwhile children eagerly collect these beautiful nuts in bags an buckets and sometimes even make little animals out of them. They are horse chestnuts and therefore inedible, but they are beautiful and even adults pick them up and carry them in their pockets. Hope you enjoy these.
