I went to my father-in-law's 60th birthday party in Tehachapi. The party was in a 100 year old barn and there was no shortage of cowboys and whisky. One of my good friends from the city attended the party and he had a few too many shots. I spent some time outside with him while he had the spins. I decided to take a shot of this tree so I would remember our bonding moment together. I even did a little light painting on the tree with my flashlight.
