After observing an interesting, old, decaying tree stump in my yard, I decided to turn it into a photo project before it disappeared. I had also been noticing how the sunsets were hitting it and creating nice shadows.
Rummaging through the toy section at a local store, I found rubber dinosaurs and plastic Army men, perfect. Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Brachiosaurus and Stegosaurus went home with me. And so the photo project began that evening in the golden light of the setting sun in the Great Smoky Mountains.
