The above photo was shot in a pine forest, located in eastern California.
The tree in focus is easily thousands of years old. Others in that same forest are said to reach around 5,000 in age.
Earlier this afternoon found me cold-calling print shops in Providence, RI (one of our sales associates is moving out but will continue to work remote). Some of those shops boasted their business being the best for the last 50, 60, 100 years.
