Dried Sweet Gum Pod

Due to my recent eye surgery, I have been falling back on older work to satisfy the photography updates for Sundry Folly.  This image was taken in December 2008 in Allentown, Pennsylvania on Christmas Day.  I was walking in my parent’s neighborhood and stopped when I noticed this beautiful and intricate sweet gum pod.
