Here are a couple I shot today in the city of Tualitin, OR. The first is a VCR remote that somehow found its way to the branches of a tree. The second is a paint brush that landed in the crotch of a tree. I think they both make statements. The first about frustration in setting the VCR clock, and the second about painting the spare bedroom!

Nikon D100, Sigma 28-70mm f2.8 lens.
First shot 1/160th at f6.3, ISO 200
Second shot 1/180th at f7.1, ISO 200

I see that you are in a quandry about what you should be doing with yourfree time. When in doubt, grab the camera...always a good choice.

I love the 2[suP]nd[/suP] one. Although I am confused with composition (rule of thirds). I understand rules are made to be broken and are only a suggestion. Having the subject centered works for me in this case. I would find it difficult making this decision looking through my viewfinder. Although during postproduction it would be far less challenging for me. Any thoughts on rule of thirds?

Jeff..good point.I think maybe the rule of thirds would lose the majority of the crotch of the tree, leaving the viewer searching for more tree.
