A new month. A new series. Of trees.
Trees are a symbol of strength and protectiveness. They are a symbol of rebirth, stability, shelter and security. In some cultures they are considered to be feminine in nature. They are about family and nurturing. In other cultures, they are believed to be sacred and the primary form of living beings, possessing the wisdom of being around since the dawn of time.
And, especially in Southeastern Louisiana — among must other places in the world — they provide a respite from the heat of summer by providing shade.
Trees. Day One.
A little housekeeping. Normally, I discuss a little bit about the technique of making the picture. I’m abandoning that for this series. If that is what interests you, instead focus on why I even bothered to take the picture. The reason behind the reason.
