Trees


“For as long as there's trees and all other natures created by our creator, i consider it beautiful! Every street corner of unpleasantness, there's always a corner of delight!”

No truer words were ever spoken… This was a comment in response to my last post. I have had many comments to my blog posts in the past, but none have struck me the way these words did, it captured the way I feel about trees. This is the reason why I focus so much attention on them when I am out taking photos. They are life givers, we usually have non caring attitude when it comes to trees, we cut them down… pass by them with no regard, but in reality they too are living creatures, and net time you pass by one I challenge you to say hello.

This particular tree was a friend of mine when I lived in Toomsuba, Mississippi. It is on the banks of Lake Tom Bailey, and it stands alone. I always had a sense of loneliness from this tree, and anytime I find my way to the Toomsuba area, I make it a point to stop and have a moment under the tree… just saying hello to an old friend.

Beautiful comment and strong looking tree. We need trees, they provide oxygen apart from natural habitat for wild-life. In third-world countries whole forests are being decimated with no thought for tomorrow. Back in my home country, South Africa, people are beginning to care for trees: recreating and planting indigenous forests and encouraging school children to plant trees. Every bit helps.

Trees are wonderful and never unfriendly, unless one falls on your head.

Trees protect us and give us wood, which smells great.

Because wherever we may be, what we may do and think, trees will constantly remind us that even if they can’t speak, they stood firm to give us life, shelter, joy and the most accessible beauty we can avail of all through our lives.
