Noir: Contemporary

The tree alone could be a character right out of Raymond Chandler.

The starkness of the tree suits the more unadorned look of the house. Looks like that roof is in need of repair.

I've always liked noir films made in the 70s but this looks like a setting for a noir film SET in the 70s. Nice capture.

Poor tree. It is Spring and should be all leafed out.

That is one hardboiled tree.

Hey gang,

Anon, I love 70s noir, too. Chinatown comes to mind, of course. But have there been films set in the 70s with a noir feel? Didn't they make Chandler's The Long Goodbye with Elliot Gould then? Was it set in current time?

Julie, thanks for the City Daily Photo update.

Thanks, everyone. Isn't this a sad, bare tree?
