Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #50: Trees

This is my submission for Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #50: Trees. (Sorry I am one day late ;-(

This banyan tree was the first tree that I fell in love with. In that little child’s mind, it was a super-tree, which would always be there for me. (Don’t be fooled by that smile though. Although I was happy to have something new to wear for a change, but the jumper was made from my dad’s wool coat and was very itching.)

When I was a teenager, I had a different favorite tree. It was a guava tree planted by my Dad. My dad had an out-of-town job, so he was away from home a lot of time. Whenever I felt angry, sad… I talked to that guava tree. Many years later, I went back to visit our old house and took a photo of the tree, but it was before digital camera time and I couldn’t locate the photo this week.

I still talk to trees, of course.

Thanks to Ann-Christine for a wonderful theme. Every tree is precious 😉 I am sure all other three lovers having problems selecting photos like I did.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I wonder what that young girl standing next to the tree imagined her life to be. I like the perspective of your fourth tree.
