At first glance, it looks like just another nice New England scene: a tree, next to a decorative metal fence.
Then you look closely and go, Whoa!
The tree has actually grown around the fence, and the concrete steps nearby. It’s pretty cool, actually — proof that we really can’t control Mother Nature.
That image was last week’s Photo Challenge (click here to see).
But although it’s in a well-trafficked spot — South Compo Road, near the side entrance to Compo Acres Shopping Center, diagonally opposite the “Raid on Danbury” historical sign — not many readers knew where it was.
Phil Bancroft was first, followed by Michael Calise, Jo Shields and Morley Boyd.
Next time you’re stuck at that light — coming from the beach or the train station — put down your phone and take a look. You’ll have plenty of time, that’s for sure.
