MIRROR/METAL TREE (TREE III)
This Tree is a collaboration between Bob Benson
and Rick Ames created in the fall of 2005. Ames welded the
metal frame and branches which can be seen below (second row left),
with only a few decorations on it (second row middle), and the way
the Tree looked at night with more decorations (second row right).
Many more strands of mirrors and other decorations were added. The
picture at top right is the way it looked for almost three
years in Bob's front yard. It is "weather proof" and in the snow
was particularly beautiful (top row right), and there also is a
close-up of a "snow scene."
