But paradise is locked and bolted; we must make a journey around the world to see if the back door has, perhaps, been left open.

Swearing is the last refuge of the imaginitively bankrupt.

I took this picture at Middle Creek, Pennsylvania. While following the trails around the place I found these trees with a slash of red paint across their trunks. When I asked the commissions office later, they said the trees had a disease and needed to be cut down. The red reminded me of a bleeding wound that will eventually kill the trees, hence the name "The Bleeding Trees".
