Always In Threes

January 21, 2012

Ever since I discovered that my trusty point and shoot camera has a lot more settings than I ever thought, I’ve been busy taking pictures. Everywhere I go, I see a potential shot. And when I can’t stop or don’t have the camera with me I get a little mad. But that’s not what’s on my mind now.

The other day, my girls and I were out walking the dogs, enjoying another beautiful Florida Winter afternoon. The picture on top is one of the shots, I took. Three palm trees. And now, everywhere I turn there seems to be a grouping of three palm trees, sometimes more, sometimes less, but mostly three! There are a lot of palm trees in South Florida, as you can imagine. It’s the nature of the beast!!! 🙂

Anyways, it made me wonder if there is a reason for it or if the landscapers that designed the plots in all the different developments just liked the look of it. I do. I like the way three palm trees look together… either in a straight line, or in a triangle. It really doesn’t matter. Is that strange? Probably. But oh well, sometimes I get a little quirky.

Do you ever ponder about inane things? And what are they? I’d really like to know. 🙂

Happy weekend to all!!!

    great shot! I love pictures of palm trees in silhouette…I have a couple that I have taken on vacation, but usually just a single tree.
    course….now I will be looking for sets of 3…..except they will be evergreens laden with snow 🙂

      Leslie, that’s too funny… I love pics of palm trees, too. I have about a million of them right now… 🙂

    I love palm trees they symbolize warmth and sun! I wonder were they issued to be planted three in a row? Is it just the way palm trees grow?

    • Susi January 23, 2012 at 6:41 pm

      It’s definitely not the way they grow, most aren’t even native to Florida!!! And I love palm trees, too. I still remember the first time I saw one at Tampa International Airport when we first came here from Germany. 🙂

    I read once that humans are naturally attracted to symmetrical designs. Maybe that’s the reason we create things in 3s and like it?

    Congrats on figuring out your camera settings!! Ugh, I have had mine for over a year and am still baffled by all the choices!

    Have a great week! Thanks for visiting my new blog. 🙂

      Rebecca, I didn’t even realize I had all these different settings… 🙂

    It is a pattern that most landscapers following because it is pleasing to the eye. That’s what my landscaper told me anyway.

      It’s got to be. Everywhere you look here the tree’s are grouped in three’s and for some reason I notice it all the time now. It’s like I’m in tune with my surroundings more, or something! Maybe I’m just weird!!! 🙂

    Now you know that the next time I’m down there, I’m going to spend the whole time counting palm tree clusters! 😉

    • Susi January 24, 2012 at 10:23 am

      Ha ha…sorry Liz. It’s a bit strange I know!!! 🙂

    Palm trees are pretty. They remind me of the Philippines. Although I must admit that I’ve never noticed them in threes anywhere around here. I bet ya anything that tomorrow, I’ll be seeing threes everywhere. Thanks! 😉

      :). Sorry. It is just something I noticed since I started taking more pictures of my surroundings. Weird, right???
