From my past I set myself free
But that place is still a part of me
This image was used for my artwork A year went by in a single day ; and just as that artwork tells a story of time, this tree tells many stories as it shows the roots of its birth; carrying its past to this present day. In many ways, we ourselves always carry our past with us; we will feel nostalgic when we come back to, or be reminded of, a thing or a place we left or put away long ago; and no matter how good or bad our past was, and whether we got over it or not, the past is still an important part of us.
This incredible tree was one of the first I saw when I visited the Singapore Botanic Gardens. I think it is a banyan tree, but not 100% sure. In April 2013 it was reported that, an application for the garden to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site was made in December 2012
Taken with a CASIO EX-FC 100 on June 28, 2011.
