52 Photos Project: Layers

This week's prompt for the
52 Photos Project is
My first thought was to take a picture of some
but that didn't work out for me this time.
So here is my next thought:
This is one of the Eucalyptus trees
that line the streets of
Claremont, California.
I've long been fascinated by their peeling bark,
so yesterday I stopped & snapped some shots.
This is a Blue Gum.
Blue Gum Eucalypts are one of the major sources of eucalyptus oil which can be used as an essential oil, in herbal teas & medications for a few examples.
However, it can also cause contact dermatitus, headaches & convulsions, and even be fatal if ingested. 
To see many more layers,


  1. That's a great interpretation of 'layers'. I love the softness of the colors ...

  2. Oh I love the Eucalyptus trees. There was a row of very old ones lining the road adjacent to my high school in Vista, California. No Eucalyptus in Oregon. Love the perspective in this shot.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
