Tree Trimmer

A tree being trimmed on Piazzale Partigiani, Rome, Italy.

I had been working upstairs all morning, slightly irritated by an annoying sound, when my neighbour Johnny alerted me to what was going on on the other side of the train station. Only at that time I realized the source of the annoying sound, and was annoyed at myself that I didn't realize earlier what was going on - after all, a tree being cut is a marvelous theme for a timelapse video!

I briefly considered doing a reverse timelapse, i.e. a clip featuring the "construction" of the tree. I gave that up rather quickly... it looks rather tacky.
